Live theater, Lipstein said, can be subversive in a powerful and positive way. People enter a theater hoping merely to be entertained. But if a truthful moment happens, if the connection is made between what and who is onstage, people leave the theater feeling more empathetic, less encumbered by those personas, than when they entered. You can see the world premiere of Hannah Benitez’s Adaptive Radiation at the new Denizen Theatre in New Paltz on Wednesdays-Saturdays, December 6-30.
