Audience members were not required to wear masks during the performance, and on top of that, the theatre was not legally allowed to require masks.

Director Tyler Cronin had shared:

"One of the things that we're saying as directors is to hopefully have people keep that six-foot distance away. If they feel comfortable wearing those masks, we want them to be wearing masks if they feel inclined to,"

The theatre's safety plan did not appear to include temperature checks on anyone entering the building, nor any changes made to the HVAC system.
