GTG is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy community. In order to ensure the health of their entire community, proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required for all employees and audience members. Their policy requires complete COVID-19 vaccinations before the date of attendance, which is currently defined as fourteen days following the final dose of the Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Moderna, or Astra-Zeneca vaccine. Proof of vaccination (the Excelsior Pass, the NYC COVID Safe Pass, a CDC vaccination card, and/or an official immunization record from outside the United States) will be required for entry into the theater.

"The struggle for equal rights has always been the hot topic for Bernard Shaw. Mrs. Warren's Profession (1895) was considered so incendiary in its time that it was banned for years in Britain and, when it finally debuted here in New York City, the entire cast was arrested on opening night. It's not the plot point of prostitution that offended the officials, but the notion that a woman would struggle to create a successful life for herself in spite of the constraints set against her by law and society, and thrive without apology. With this, our return to Theatre Row after the COVID-19 shutdown, we have a dream cast to bring you this highly entertaining story involving a mother and daughter who, for the first time, reveal their true self to each other. The issue of women's rights, in particular, permeates all of Shaw's work and perhaps never, before or since, has this socio-political cause been more explosively examined," said GTG Artistic Director David Staller. "We feel like pioneers! Though most every other full union off-Broadway theatre company at our budget level have either postponed or cancelled their return to live performance in the autumn, we're determined to join the community full-throttle, and we plan on letting nothing stop us. All cast, staff, and audience members will be fully vaccinated and every possible safety guideline will be followed."
