I don't see any shows listed on the website. What's wrong?

Shows provide us with seats on a last-minute basis.  This means that we do not have tickets every day.  The best way to keep up-to-date with Theater For All is to subscribe to our mailing list.  All new shows are announced via the mailing list.
