Join Seattle Rep in New York City for a theater lover's dream trip, featuring a slate of stirring new work personally selected by Artistic Director Braden Abraham, and culminating in the Broadway premiere of The Great Society. Co-commissioned by Seattle Rep from Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Schenkkan, and directed by Bill Rauch, The Great Society was on our Bagley Wright stage in 2014 and now has a limited run at Lincoln Center.

Shared meals and performances ensure travelers get to know one another, building friendships that last beyond the return to Seattle.
