TheaterWorksUSA's Chelsea Studios Will Not Reopen

TheatreWorksUSA has announced that their Chelsea Studios will not reopen.

"Sadly, the COVID-19 pandemic has created a situation that makes it impossible for TheaterWorksUSA to maintain these spaces while we are unable to produce live theater," The Staff & Board of Directors of TheaterWorksUSA said in a statement on their website.

"With our producing and touring operations currently suspended through the end of 2020, we - like many other not-for-profit cultural institutions - are faced with making difficult decisions."
