Remembering Terrence McNally

Listen to our free streaming tribute

It is with great sadness that LATW acknowledges the passing of Tony Award®-winning playwright Terrence McNally. As a tribute, we are now streaming his hit play Lips Together, Teeth Apart for free on our website.

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.
