City Theater To Reschedule Performances Due To Health Crisis
City Theater has released the following statement:
The staff, volunteers, and actors of City Theater are all looking forward to the day when the lights go down, the seats are full, and our Artistic Director, Linda Sturdivant, takes the stage and starts with her iconic line, "I'm Linda Sturdivant, and I have the best job in the world!"
While City Theater makes plans for what the rest of our 2019-2020 season will look like, we, like many of you, are unsure of what the short-term future will bring. With cancellations and closures being extended and all of facing uncertain times, we wanted to share what information we know and to help resolve some of the uncertainty in the world.
Therefore, City Theater is doing the following:
· City Theater is giving an automatic refund (more information about refunds below) to anyone who purchased a ticket for Little Women: The Broadway Musical, originally scheduled for March 13th - March 29th.
For our patrons who have their Little Women: The Broadway Musical tickets
"parked"/on hold, have show coupon passes, or received a comp ticket for the show, please see additional information below.
· City Theater is postponing the production of On Golden Pond, originally scheduled for May 8th - May 24th.
This beautiful story will be seen on the City Theater stage at a yet to be determined date in the future. Until that date is announced, City Theater is suspending sales of On Golden Pond tickets and anyone who has purchased a ticket will receive an automatic refund (more information about refunds below).
For our patrons who have their On Golden Pond tickets "parked"/on hold, have show coupon passes, or received a comp ticket for the show, please see additional information below.
· We are suspending ticket sales of La Cage Aux Folles, originally scheduled for July 17th -August 2nd. Once more information for La Cage Aux Folles is known, ticket sales will resume for "the
schmaltziest, most old-fashioned major musical since Annie. Highly enjoyable." -New York
