Welcome to Wilma Home Theater!
During this closure, we’ll be streaming and sharing new content from some of our wonderful Co-Artistic Directors, HotHouse Company Members, and Teaching Artists. We’ll keep them coming until our theater doors re-open to welcome you back to the Wilma!
We are continuing to pay our artists during this time to create this work. If you would like to support Wilma Home Theater, please consider a tax-deductible donation.
