Conceived in 2006, Lean & Hungry Theater (Lean & Hungry) is a non-profit theater company that bridges the gap between readers’ theater and radio drama. The productions of Lean & Hungry Theater are endorsed by The Columbia Lighthouse for the Blind.
Drawing primarily on the comedies and tragedies of William Shakespeare, Lean & Hungry provides professional readers’ theater to underserved areas, in established or improvised venues (both live and electronic), for the educational benefit and cultural enrichment of students, families, seniors and other interested groups in the Washington, DC metropolitan area and beyond.
Lean & Hungry's productions are read and recorded before a live audience, complete with live sound effects and original musical underscore. The recorded performances are made available as a podcast, Webcast, broadcast or audio CD. For more information, visit www.leanandhungrytheater.com
