Stream Syracuse Stage

Experience the magic of Syracuse Stage this season with video on demand options. Now until November 22, the public can buy virtual admission to access Lanford Wilson's 1980 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Talley's Folly. Talley's Folly, set in 1944, tells the tale of an enchanted evening where Matt Friedman, a 40+ accountant in love, drives 200 miles to the heart of Missouri Christian farm country to propose to the younger and seemingly uninterested, Sally Talley. Make sure to buy tickets for Talley's Folly and check out what's coming next in the 2020/2021 Syracuse Stage lineup
