Seminars and Forums

Insights Seminars

This Monday night series provides Old Globe patrons with an opportunity to closely connect with productions both onstage and backstage. A panel selected from the artistic company of each show (playwrights, actors, directors, designers, and/or technicians) engages patrons in an informal and illuminating presentation of ideas and insights to enhance the theatregoing experience. Each Insights Seminar takes place in its respective theatre and includes an informal reception starting at 6:30 p.m. Seminars begin at 7:00 p.m. No reservations necessary. Insights Seminars are Free.
