Richmond’s Gateway Theatre recently pulled back the curtain to reveal their 2017-2018 season line-up. A selection of classics and new works the season’s theme is Reflections in Time as the four mainstage productions are set in different eras of the past.
Artistic Director, Jovanni Sy says, “In looking back in time, these plays hold up a mirror to our lives today and provide a glimpse of what our future might be.”
