American Players Theater looks to embrace diversity, expand “the canon”

For American Players Theater, strong storytelling, no matter who is telling it, deserves to be heard. The space between language and those who choose to listen is a sacred place, where truth and reflection allows for a clear path towards understanding a perspective other than your own. That space is becoming more confined and personal for this small, esteemed classical theater company, located in the wooded hills of Spring Green, Wisconsin. This summer season, APT will continue its goal in redefining the term “classical” through two refreshing plays, The River Bride and The Brothers Size.
