Alliance Theatre will suspend all performances for the remainder of its 2019/20 Season

March 13, 2020, 11:30 a.m.

In light of ongoing developments resulting from the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the national move to delay or cancel large group gatherings as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization, the Alliance has made the difficult decision to suspend all remaining performances for its 2019/20 season, as well as select programming and special events. Productions of Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: The Rock Experience, In My Granny’s Garden, 53% Of, and Sweat, as well as the Festival of New Works, Toddler Takeover, and remaining winter classes will be canceled, effective immediately.

The resulting cancellation of various public events will have very real financial consequences for theatres and theatre artists. Nationwide, thousands of theatre professionals’ jobs and healthcare are at stake. Transferring your ticket to a donation or credit supports the Alliance during these uncertain times and we appreciate your consideration. The following options are available for those who have already purchased tickets to canceled performances:
