"In the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic," said The Marsh Founder/Artistic Director Stephanie Weisman, "we feel stronger than ever about the important role that art plays in connecting communities, humanizing environments, and sharing experiences. For the past 30 years, The Marsh has provided a critical community resource for artists developing new works, and for audiences seeking bold new theater. We are actively exploring ways to offer a virtual experience for our artists and audiences, until it is once again safe to gather." After April 1, 2020 The Marsh will assess the viability of reinstating public performances and provide updates to its audiences.
