COVID-19 Safety Policies

This theater is deeply committed to the health and safety of our audiences, performers, and staff. Among many enhancements, we have now upgraded all of our auditorium ventilation systems with MERV 13 filters, created a contactless experience for guests entering the theatre, and established rigorous cleaning and sanitation protocols. Based on CDC and New York state guidelines at the time of performance, protocols may include contact tracing survey, vaccination or negative test verification, limitations on belongings in the theatre, proper mask usage, assigned entry times, contactless temperature check, social distancing, and more.

Specific health & safety protocols are subject to change but will be clearly communicated to ticket holders in advance of their performance. Ticket holders who do not comply with venue protocols will not be admitted.
