Welcome to OpenForum.  We love plays that start a good conversation and there are many ways and places to have that conversation! This is your one-stop place to join in on the discussions going on about all the shows at Forum.

We'd love for you to participate by commenting on our blog posts but we'd also love to interact with you via Social Media. Please follow us, friend us, like us, link us, and watch us (not necessarily in that order)
