ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE NEW REPERTORY THEATER (WATERTOWN, MA):
Thank you all for your patience during this difficult time in the theatre arts community. Due to Governor Baker’s encouragement to not hold public gatherings, and as a precaution to protect the communities we serve because of the COVID-19 outbreak, New Repertory Theater has made the difficult decision to:
•Postpone all performances of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill to April 25 through May 17.
•Postpone all bookings of our touring productions scheduled prior to April 13 of Thurgood, The Scarlet Letter, and Romeo & Juliet until further notice.
•Postpone our Gala 2020 (previously scheduled for May 5) to Monday, October 26, 2020.
•Cancel all performances of August Wilson’s Fences.
•At this time, the Mosesian Center for the Arts is closed to the public.
We recognize that these decisions may cause significant inconvenience to our most loyal supporters and patrons, but please know your well-being and the well-being of our artists and employees will continue to be our top priority. The CDC has clearly communicated that one of the most effective measures for controlling the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is social distancing. Based on that recommendation, we feel it is our ethical responsibility to put the common good ahead of any one individual or institution.
