Hartford is a place of immense artistic vitality and as a cultural conduit, Hartford Public Library is in a unique position to help share the city’s good work. We are excited to count TheaterWorks among our offerings,” said Bridget Quinn-Carey, HPL’s president and CEO.

Producing Artistic Director, Rob Ruggiero added “We’ve been interested in partnering with Hartford Public Library for some time. In a year filled with challenges, we’re thankful that one of the outcomes is we can offer Hartford residents access to more great storytelling. TheaterWorks is firmly rooted in this community and grateful to call Hartford home.”

Access to the performances can be checked out through the library’s museum pass system, found here, starting the first day of each play’s livestream dates. Each stream is good for 24 hours after checkout.
