Theatres around the country, even in states spared significant COVID-19 outbreaks, have been obliged to remain “dark” for months. But until there’s a widely-available vaccine, the possibility of a resurgence remains—and that possibility has had a devastating impact on performing arts venues.
While the Senate continues to debate the next phase of stimulus support, it is critical to keep this vital industry alive until all theatres can safely open their doors.
