Free Exchanges due to illness

HVAC Improvements

Our upgraded HVAC systems increase the number of air exchanges to remove aerosolized droplets and provide updated filtering to meet CDC and city standards.

On behalf of the producers, staff and performers, we issue a heartfelt thank you to our audiences who make these generous accomodations for the health of all. We also thank you for respecting the choices of others regarding mask use in our space.

Theater Wit

Anne Washburn catapulted us 75 years into the future in 2014’s hit Mr. Burns, a post- electric play. Join us for her newest, most adventurous work—a remarkable (and often brutally honest and funny) trip into the backstage world of technical rehearsal. Don a private headset to hear backstage chatter contrast with a dozen human stories and the sweeping drama of a new play. A near-perfect recreation of a technical rehearsal, 10 out of 12 celebrates our collective effort as humans at work to create beauty amid the mundane.

Running Time: 2 hours 30 minutes with intermission
