Theaterology: A.C.T.'s Podcast

Theaterology, American Conservatory Theater’s podcast, offers listeners a behind-the-scenes look at the productions of San Francisco’s Tony Award–winning theater. Released on the 1st and 15th of every month, Theaterology will feature everything from interviews with artists and experts to illuminating analyses of the themes explored in A.C.T.’s plays. These engaging and delightful podcasts offer audiences invaluable background on the plays they love, insight into the world of theater, and compelling information about the rigorous process of taking a play from the page to the stage. Accessible, informative, and entertaining, Theaterology is your audio-guide to American theater.

In addition to regularly scheduled episodes, keep your eyes peeled for special editions of Theaterology. These are live, onstage recordings of A.C.T.’s InterACT events, featuring pre- and postshow conversations with producers, directors, playwrights, actors, and others who are intimately connected to our productions and the artistic life of A.C.T.
