Skylight’s Beyond Conversation has become a destination event for audiences that want more from their theater-going experience. After the curtain goes down and before the actors can get their makeup off, the audience is still in their seats caught up “in conversation” with invited guests discussing topics themed by the current production.
“It's different than an old-fashioned "talkback." It brings people together and they walk away with something they didn't know or even think about before. It stays polite, but it can get lively. We reach deep into the community for panelists who can offer insight about topics suggested by the play. Most of the audience stays and engages." - Sandee Grossman, Executive Director

Topics vary weekly. Special guest chats last about 20 minutes depending on audience interest.
Guests attending the scheduled performance have seating priority and typically remain in their reserved seats. If you don't have a ticket for the day's performance you may attend only if there are open seats available. Unticketed guests must wait out on the city sidewalk, beyond the dining patio, until the show is over and patrons exit the theatre before they enter. Skylight Staff will be on hand to assist.
Recordings (video and podcasts) of the chat are posted online.
