GOOD THEATER COVID-19 UPDATE Good Theater will not reopen until sometime in 2021. Concerns for public safety, as well as the safety and well-being of our cast, crew and staff, is what brought us to this decision. We are eager to reopen, and we are committed to opening with Desperate Measures, the musical which was in rehearsal at the time of closures due to COVID-19. "Whenever it is safe to reopen, Desperate Measures will be the perfect show," claims Brian P. Allen, Good Theater's Executive and Artistic Director. "Desperate Measures is pure musical comedy, and is sure to lift audiences' spirits when it debuts." In the meantime, patrons can follow Good Theater on social media. Periodically the company will post highlight videos of past performances, interviews, and photos and other memorabilia from the company's archives. Good Theater was almost finished with its 18th season when the pandemic caused a shutdown in March. At the time the company hoped to reopen in September, but with the virus still spreading, it is too soon to return in this fall. All patrons who had tickets to Desperate Measures will be given new dates once the production has an official opening. “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.” - Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. We at Good Theater mourn the losses of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and Tony McDade, the latest Black Americans whose lives have been senselessly taken by the systemic racism in our country. We cannot remain silent. Injustices and violence toward Black Americans and other minorities cannot be tolerated. We commit ourselves to the work of becoming better allies, unlearning the insidious subconscious biases from generations of prejudice that we all carry, and to being a safe space for our Black community members. We encourage you to seek out resources to grow your allyship, as well. Here is one that we have found valuable in our practices: http://bit.ly/ANTIRACISMRESOURCES. As we move forward, we must look into ourselves and our communities to seek what we can do individually and as a community to enact real change. Hate has no place in our theater, our city, our country, our world. We stand with the extraordinary Black artists with whom we work, our Black patrons, and all Black members of this community. We acknowledge the pain and suffering that many of our friends, family members, colleagues, and patrons are feeling today. You are heard. You are seen. Black Lives Matter.
