Going Solo:

An Illustrated Lecture with Alon Nashman

Solo shows are virtuosic high-wire acts – without the safety net of acting partners! Alon is here to teach you the ropes.



Wednesday October 28th, 2020

Alon Nashman has developed and performed solo shows for 20 years, touring them nationally and internationally. This 2 hour lecture + Q&A will touch on writing/adapting, self-producing and touring solo shows, with the hope of inspiring participants to consider creating their own solo material.
