Audiences get a sneak peek into the creative process as CPT presents six showcases from performances that are being developed by Northeast Ohio creators. Artists choose a 10-15 minute segment of their future production to develop and share. The environment is part vaudeville, part rehearsal, part workshop as audience and artists see the work together, assess it and offer their reactions.
