McCarter Theatre has canceled all performances through June of 2021. The decision was announced on Thursday in an email to supporters.
“We are so very grateful for the kind notes and generous support that we continue to receive every day. Your good wishes lift our spirits as we navigate these extraordinary times and patiently wait until we can safely welcome you back into our spaces,” reads the email. “In light of current public health recommendations, we believe it is wisest to cancel the live performances that we had planned to bring you from February through June 2021.”
The staff at McCarter are working on a touchless ticketing experience for use when the theater reopens. “Top-level cleanliness, smart social distancing, and the exquisite joy of live performance will all be ready when government guidelines change,” reads the email.
McCarter has been featuring performances online during the pandemic, and has created a gift box that can be ordered online in celebration of the Charles Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol.”
