Digital Subscriptions for the
2020-2021 Season

The Forward Theater experience...from your couch.

You asked. We listened. After the tremendous success of our digital presentation of The Lifespan of a Fact, and in an effort to provide a safe alternative to seeing our productions in public, we have created a digital subscription for the three remaining productions in our 2020-21 season for just $75 - a savings of almost 40% off regular price for digital tickets!


Due to the evolving waves of COVID-19 infections, it's impossible to predict when we will be able to safely rehearse and perform our productions for the general public. And our priority will always be the health and safety of our audiences. Regardless of when we'll be back in The Playhouse at Overture Center, we're offering the opportunity to watch the rest of the 2020-21 season from the comfort of your living room.


- Digital subscribers will receive links via email to view each production online. A new link will be sent for each play, prior to its scheduled run dates. Each digital production will be available for a single viewing during the following dates:

The Niceties by Eleanor Burgess - January 22-February 7, 2021
Lewiston | Clarkston by Samuel D. Hunter - April 8-25, 2021
45 Plays for America's First Ladies by Chloe Johnston, Sharon Greene, Genevra Gallo-Bayiates, Bilal Dardai, and Andy Bayiates - May 6-23, 2021

- Digital subscribers will have access to our Virtual Lobby, which contains preshow lectures, opening night watch parties, helpful tech guides to bring the experience to your television, and links to join a series of post-show talkbacks during the run.

- Seating priority for 2021-22: All digital subscribers will receive some seating priority for the 2021-22 season, should they choose to upgrade to a traditional/seated subscription. Seating priority will follow current, ticketed subscribers that choose to renew in 2021-22.


Our hope is to rehearse all of our productions in person and provide a filmed version of the live stage performance. We also acknowledge that health mandates may prevent this, for the safety of the performers and our audiences. We will determine the nature of each play individually, based on current mandates as well as safety guidelines established through our relationship with Actors' Equity Association.

Even if our plays are produced remotely, they will be the result of a unique collaboration of theater artists and filmmakers. We are constantly exploring new and innovative ways to bring the stage to the screen, and we assure you that the experience will be what you’ve come to rely on with Forward Theater productions - bold, professional, and innovative.
