We bring live and recorded theatre

to the world

Radio Broadcast: 'The Waldorf Conference'

Live in LA: 'Sisters Matsumoto'

November 16-18 at the James Bridges Theatre/UCLA

Three Japanese-American sisters return to their farm after years in a WWII internment camp, but the once prosperous family finds it’s not easy to pick up the pieces of their former lives.

Welcome to L.A. Theatre Works

We've recorded over 500 plays live in performance, everything from Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde to Arthur Miller and recent Tony winners, all with top-name actors. We then turn these recordings into podcasts, streaming audio, radio shows, and CDs, so you can listen to great theatre anywhere.
