COVID-19 Statement

To our A.R.T. Family,

It has been a challenging time, as life as we knew it has been upended by the COVID-19 pandemic. At its core, theater is a collaborative, collective experience. Even though we are no longer able to gather in the same physical space, we are committed to finding new ways to strengthen our connections and community. We know that the power of theater to cultivate our shared humanity and to heal is needed more than ever.

In this moment, it is vital that we operate in a way that ensures everyone’s health and safety. With this in mind, we have decided to postpone the rest of A.R.T.’s 2019/20 Season programming. Our productions of Macbeth In Stride and 1776 will be moved into our 2020/21 Season. Current ticket holders will be contacted directly over the next few days. We are grateful for your patience with this process.

Over the coming weeks, we look forward to staying in touch with you. In the meantime, we invite you to explore our archives and revisit moments from A.R.T.’s past that brought us together in celebration, wonder, and delight.

Theater has endured over millennia through its potential for transformation and reinvention. As we create a path forward, we know your collaboration will be integral to the future of the A.R.T. Thank you for your many messages of support and belief in our work. Together, we will find our way through these times.
