Theatre Philadelphia's COVID-19 Statement
March 10th, 2020
Dear Theatre Philadelphia Community,
We want to recommend clear and measured responses to the threat of Coronavirus (COVID-19), for our community of artists and patrons.
At this time, Theatre Philadelphia events are scheduled to go forward, including the Marquee Dinner on March 16th, and The Role of Criticism in the Performing Arts Ecosystem speaker series event on April 6th. Of course, we understand that situations have been changing rapidly. Please make sure to check your email or www.TheatrePhiladelphia.org before attending events to make sure that nothing has changed.
We will attempt to stay on top of any cancellations of theatrical performances across Greater Philadelphia, but please check the website of specific theatres in order to make sure that their events are continuing as planned. As of today, we have not received notice of any cancellation from our participating theatres.
Below are some recommendations regarding COVID-19. Please remember that these safety precautions are for individuals’ safety, of course, but are also deeply important as a gesture of community caretaking. Theatre is a live art form that inherently involves community and cannot be offered in isolation. Taking intentional care of one’s health and health practices is a way to care for other audience members and artists, as well as one's wider sphere of influences.
We are closely monitoring the situation and will follow the recommendations of the CDC as the situation develops and will keep you apprised.
