Mirror Stage uses the power of theatre to challenge assumptions, bias and prejudice, while encouraging more thoughtful reflection on today's issues.


Theatre That Gets People Talking, Mirror Stage reflects the diversity of our community onstage in high quality, progressive, thought-provoking programming that plays it smart without always playing it safe. We nurture unique artistic voices while providing opportunities for newly-emerging artists to work alongside more seasoned professionals.

Mirror Stage’s innovative staged reading series have been engaging the community in examining and discussing topical issues from different perspectives since 2004. Presented without costumes or sets, the emphasis on the text encourages audiences to create their own imagined world inhabited by the play’s characters, increasing empathy and expanding awareness. Following every performance, a moderated discussion with the audience and artists explores the issues raised in more depth.

For more than 17 years, Mirror Stage has featured African Americans, Asian Americans (both South and East Asians), Latinx, Native Americans, and Pacific Islanders, as well as white actors. More than 40 percent of the actors featured in Mirror Stage productions have been people of color—some, but not all, in ethnically specific stories and roles. Mirror Stage is committed to diversity at all levels: on our stage, in our audience, on our staff, and within our leadership. Mirror Stage invites a larger population to see themselves and their stories represented onstage, affirming a broader range of experiences.
