Terrific New Theatre To Suspend Shows Due to Covid-19
Terrific New Theatre has issued a statement regarding its upcoming events and programming due to virus:
After careful consideration of the State of Alabama and City of Birmingham's virus guidelines regarding the well-being of our patrons, staff and artists, Terrific New Theatre has made the extremely difficult decision to cancel all remaining performances of THE NORA PLAYS: "A Doll's House" and "A Doll's House, Part 2."
This is devastating news for us, and we did not make this decision lightly. We thank our loyal patrons for your patience as we move forward in these unprecedented times. I will be in touch with all patrons who purchased "A Doll's House" and/or "A Doll's House, Part 2" tickets to best accommodate the closing of this production.
As of today, we plan to push forward with the remainder of our season as the situation allows. We will continue to follow developments and update our patrons on a weekly basis ... via our website, Facebook and email. If canceling performances of any future productions is warranted, plans for accommodating our season ticket holders and prepaid ticket holders will be formulated at that time.
As a nonprofit organization, TNT could use your support - now more than ever - to continue what we've done over the past 34 years: promote live theatre and provide a place for artists in our city to practice their craft. We know that you love what an evening at TNT entails - a couple of hours of high-quality theatre that strengthens community and nourishes your soul.
Suspending THE NORA PLAYS after only five performances puts TNT grossly behind its budget for March and April. We cannot overstate the devastating financial impact that having to cancel any future shows would have on our organization.
