American Theatre Masters Series


Occasionally, Road Less Traveled Production (RLTP) selects an American drama of great merit – generally one previously unseen in WNY – and produces it as an American Theatre Master selection. A high-profile theatre artist closely associated with that play (usually the author) is then invited to visit the Road Less Traveled Theater during the run of the production. Our American Theatre Master presides over a lengthy afternoon Master Class session with RLTP’s New Play Workshop playwrights, Ensemble, and area students, enjoys an evening performance of their play, and is the Guest of Honor at RLTP’s Spring Gala.

In 2017, RLTP will welcome playwright Donald Margulies during run of The Country House.  Stay tuned for more info in regards to Mr. Margulies’ visit!
