Announcing COVID-related cancellations

January 14, 2022

In an abundance of caution and for the safety of our community, we’re cancelling the production of The Lifespan of a Fact, as well as our Regional Tour of Chase the Ace. The Lifespan of a Fact was scheduled to begin rehearsals on Jan 17 in preparation for a Mainstage run from Feb 9–Mar 5, and Chase the Ace was to be on tour Feb 7–Mar 9.

“With the surge of Omicron, it has become increasingly evident that it would be near impossible to keep artists, audiences and staff safe through rehearsals and the run of these productions. It was no longer a question of what to do ‘if’ we have a breakthrough case, but rather the inevitable ‘when’ it happens. I’m deeply sorry that we find ourselves in a cancellation cycle yet again, but I’m hopeful for a quick return to the stage with the remainder of our season,” said Artistic Director Kelly Thornton.

We will contact Lifespan of a Fact ticket holders directly.
