McCarter Theatre cancels live performances through June


McCarter Theatre announced it will cancel all live performances through at least June 2021 because of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.



“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,” the staff wrote in a message on Nov. 12.
“Throughout this pandemic, our goal has been to communicate with you as definitively as possible. 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.
“We are continuing our conversations with artists — they are as excited as we are to resume performing in-person for you. We are also working to unveil a touchless ticketing experience so that you won’t have to worry about the handling of your credit card or tickets. Top-level cleanliness, smart social distancing and the exquisite joy of live performance will all be ready when government guidelines change,” the message states.
In the meantime, McCarter is offering virtual programming, such as the Adrienne Kennedy play festival through Feb. 21; and the new holiday offering, A Christmas Carol @HOME, where the magic of Dickens’ classic tale comes to life in a curated gift box.
