We are very happy to be able to offer live programming again, but the first thing you’ll notice when taking your seat is how much roomier the auditorium feels. In order to keep our artists and audiences safe, we’ve been forced to reduce our seating capacity by nearly 75% and close our bar.
As you can imagine, this has a tremendous effect on us financially and means that even with a full house, we can barely cover our nightly expenses, let alone keep our budget in balance. We’re looking at closing out the year with a large deficit.
Rather than raise our prices universally and exclude anyone from our programming, we have chosen to introduce a new ticket price: The Absent Neighbor. Audience members who would like to support us are welcomed and encouraged to buy a symbolic ticket for the audience member who would have been seated next to them before the ongoing global pandemic changed everything.
If you are able, please consider buying a ticket at the Absent Neighbor price level. Every little bit goes an extremely long way to helping us keep the theater going and continuing to bring you high-quality live art!
