Come see EXCHANGE at Citywide Open Studios
In 1880, just after the end of the Civil War, New Haven was home to the first telephone exchange and switchboard. Taking inspiration from this nugget of history, A Broken Umbrella Theatre proudly presents its twelfth original work, Exchange.

An exploration of the physical as well as the figurative, Exchange is an interactive theatrical experience taking place in different locations across New Haven as part of the annual City-Wide Open Studios.
EXCHANGE will be presented at 12:30 and 4:30 p.m. each day during the Westville, Armory, and Erector Square Weekends. Read More
