Digital Stage, presented by American Express

Thanks to our partners at American Express, we recently launched Center Theatre Group’s newest presenting venue—The Digital Stage. The world has changed, but the need for theatre is as strong as ever. From livestreamed performances to interactive shared experiences and educational workshop series, we strive to have something for everyone with social connection at the core. Our collection of curated offerings include new commissions, semi-staged readings and productions, events from our Broadway partners, and exclusive global content including productions from Matthew Bourne/New Adventures and The Stratford Festival.
