As COVID-19 Precautions Continue, Boston-Area Theatres Join Others in Shutting Down

As restrictions on large gatherings across the country begin to take effect in the wake of the spread of COVID-19, Boston-area regional theatres are canceling performances. The city’s theatre scene is not alone, with arts companies in New York City—including all Broadway productions—Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and more making similar efforts as the situation evolves.

See below for updates.

- Huntington Theatre Company will cancel all public performances and events at both the Huntington Avenue Theatre and the Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts until further notice. Affected productions include the company’s upcoming world premiere of Our Daughters, Like Pillars, scheduled for March 20–April 19.

- SpeakEasy Stage Company’s production of The Children, which began February 28 and was slated to run through March 28 in the Roberts Theatre at the Calderwood Pavilion, has therefore canceled its remaining performances as well.

- The American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has canceled or postponed several events slated to play its Oberon space over the next few weeks, including Dreamgirls, Penny Arcade, and Beloved King.
