After impressive performances in New York City and elsewhere, City Council Meeting, a unique and inventive piece of theater, comes to Z Space.

And the best part is, you get to be part of the show! At each performance, audience members have the option to participate as councilors, speakers or supporters.

Word for Word consistently goes far and above simple storytelling with their staged readings; I have always love their productions.
You should not miss their current production of You Know When the Men Are Gone--two moving stories about individuals trying to put back the pieces of themselves that were blown apart by war.
