TheatreWorks of Silicon Valley has stepped forward to offer its condolences and support for San Jose Repertory Theatre, which announced yesterday that it will cease operations. In hopes of easing some of the burden, TheatreWorks has offered to accept San Jose Rep tickets.
Ticket holders to San Jose Rep's Landscape with Weapon can exchange those tickets for TheatreWorks' production of Marry Me a Little, running now through June 29. Ticket holders should contact TheatreWorks box office at 650-463-1960 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
TheatreWorks will work with San Jose Rep's 2014-2015 subscribers to honor as many tickets as possible for TheatreWorks 2014-2015 season, based on availability. Subscribers should contact TheatreWorks box office at 650-463-1960 or email@example.com for more information.
Said TheatreWorks Managing Director Phil Santora, "We are deeply saddened at the loss of this vibrant and important theatre company, and would like to express our deep sadness to our colleagues at the Rep. We also hope to honor their work, and the support of their patrons, with this gesture."
TheatreWorks, founded 45 years ago, is a LORT professional theatre with an annual budget of $8 million. In addition to presenting pristine productions of regional premieres and classics, the company has developed a national reputation for development of new works. Among many other musicals and plays developed there, TheatreWorks workshopped and premiered Memphis, which captured the 2010 Best Musical Tony Award and played on Broadway for three years before embarking on a 19 month national tour. TheatreWorks presents a season of eight productions (musicals and plays) per year, presented at two theatres located in Palo Alto and Mountain View, California.
About the current production:
