Across the country, theaters are suffering. Many have announced a pause in new productions and laid off the majority of its staff. Some theaters have simply closed for good. Each struggles with reduced contributions and severely depressed ticket sales. Even Broadway is not immune, only 83% of its audience returned this past season.
Theater artists did not go to class and ask, “How do you survive a global pandemic?” “It’s truly uncharted waters.
While other sectors of the arts have rebounded, the worry is that theater audiences have changed their behavior, now seeming to prefer streaming nightly entertainment from the couch.
But we’ve kept our finger firmly on the pulse of what people really want post-pandemic. We’ve never let our bond break and as the pandemic took hold, we took over the rooftop of the garage above our theater, built a stage and were among the first theaters in the nation to invite back audiences. People wept on the roof because they had somewhere to be and other people to share their experiences with. They know they can’t feel the same sense of community from their living room. So, we hope you’ll come hang out at our house: our Playhouse, our Arthouse, our Clubhouse, and our Schoolhouse.
