Irish Repertory Theatre is contacting ticket holders directly about ticket refunds.

The 2020 Gala, Celebrating our Pal: The Musicals of Hal Prince is still expected to take place on June 8, but our single ticket on-sale dates will be rescheduled until the Irish Rep box office team has had time to process all affected ticket purchases for the productions above.
