Target Margin Theater Suspends Remaining 2019-2020 Season
In response to the recent outbreak of virus, Target Margin Theater has suspended public programming for the remainder of its 2019-2020 season. This includes the Yangtze Repertory Theatre and Gung Ho Projects production of SALESMANa??ae??, Moe Yousuf's Present Shame and Further Woe, and Cities of Brass, Target Margin's annual TMT Lab festival. Target Margin values the health and wellbeing of its audiences, artists, and staff, and believes this suspension of performances is the best course of action for their community and stakeholders.
"Target Margin is moved now especially by a paramount value: people," says Target Margin's Founding Artistic Director David Herskovits. "We are no more than the people who have made our work and been reached by it; we care now only for the well-being of humanity everywhere and will strive to add to that always. Live theater is life writ large, and we strive now more than ever to fulfill that charge in ways terrible, inspiring, and wholly unforeseen."
Current season memberships and individual ticket reservations will be held and rescheduled once programmatic activities resume. While individual ticket refunds are available, Target Margin is hopeful that audiences will donate the cost of their ticket to help support its artists and staff.

For 29 years, Target Margin Theater has been praised for its aggressive interpretations of classic texts, lesser-known works, and new plays inspired by existing sources. In addition, Target Margin has served over 1,000 artists through its annual incubator LAB festival and has nurtured the next generation of theater makers via yearlong fellowship and residency programs
Target Margin Theater's first permanent home is located at 232 52nd Street in the Sunset Park section of Brooklyn. The modern, industrial space includes two large rehearsal studios, office space, and a column free, 3,250 sq. ft. performance space with generous 18 ft. ceilings. The theater is named The Doxsee after founding member and resident designer Lenore Doxsee (1965-2017).
