Table Reading Series

About the program

The Lab's Table Reading Series presents readings of new musicals and musicals-in-development, written by Latiné-identifying writers and writing teams. The series provides a free space for writers to share and to revise their latest draft in a private setting with invited audience-members only. 

Our Goals:

  1. Provide a free space for writers to test and refine the current draft of their show

  2. Offer four hours in the studio for the reading and day-of feedback session.

  3. Hear the full arc of the story aloud, with appropriately cast actors.

  4. Elevate the work of Latiné writers and providing resources to eliminate the gap in opportunity in the theatre industry.

  5. Provide outside dramaturgical feedback, from both an outside dramaturg and Lab staff.

  6. Showcase the script to potential collaborators, depending on the current development state of the show


From June 19th to September 25th of 2022, the Lab facilitated the first Table Reading Series,

 made possible thanks to a generous donation of space by Jen Waldman Studios. 

The Inaugural 2022 Table Reading Series presented the following ELEVEN shows:
