The American Repertory Theater (A.R.T.) at Harvard University is a leading force in the American theater, producing groundbreaking work in Cambridge and beyond. A.R.T.'s Act II initiative is an experiment in disrupting the role of spectator as passive observer. Act II invites audience members to remain in the theater following performances for a second act of curated discussions. An open forum focused on the core themes of A.R.T. productions, these moderated conversations have included scholars, medical professionals, families, activists, artists, educators, and more—highlighting the ways in which members of the A.R.T. community continue to create impact in the Boston area and the world.
