Cincinnati Shakespeare Cancels Remainder of 2019-20 Season
Cincinnati Shakespeare has cancelled the remainder of the season.
Read the full statement below:
It is with a continued heavy heart that we must notify you that all remaining productions in the 2019-2020 Season have now been cancelled, including "The Book of Will".
We previously announced the cancellations of "Pride and Prejudice" and "Hamlet". This is in response to the Governor of Ohio, Mike DeWine's order that all mass gatherings be cancelled. This week it has been further stated by government officials that even groups as small as 10 should avoid being in the same space. This became immediately problematic for a collaborative art form such as ours in theatre to continue with rehearsals and production builds so we have made the decision to cancel the remaining performances this season.
We have also heard from many of our patrons, asking the question "How can I help?"
