Boca del Lupo’s Red Phone might be the most unique kind of theatre to come out of the pandemic. This audience-to-audience performance takes place in a vintage phone booth that also contains a teleprompter. One by one, audience members have scripted 5-minute conversations with each other. It’s a super cool opportunity regardless of whether or not performing is your thing—the anonymity of the phone booth allows performers to really dive in to characters. It’s been called the “the theatrical equivalent to singing in the shower.”
