McCarter Cancels Events Through June 30

In response to the continuing situation regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus), McCarter Theatre Center has announced the cancellation of all performances and events through June 30, it was announced on Monday, March 23.

The full production run of Nathan Alan Davis’ The Refuge Plays, all scheduled Presented Series events for the rest of the season including the Jazz in June Festival, and 2020 Gala featuring Michael Feinstein are affected. McCarter administrative offices and production shops will remain closed for the time being and the remaining staff will continue to work remotely.

Regarding this expansion of cancellations, McCarter Managing Director Michael S. Rosenberg said, “We do not take this decision lightly and think it is in the best interest of the many different communities and constituencies that we serve. We ask that you consider making a donation to McCarter to help ensure that we are ready to re-open our doors when the time comes and welcome everyone back for the magic and fellowship of live performance. In the coming days, we hope that you will join us online as we celebrate art and artists, keep an open dialogue with our community, and inspire you to embark on your own creative projects as we weather this storm together. What you can expect from us: important updates to keep you in the know, a deeper look at the artists we have for the fall, fun at-home activities, a look back on our favorite productions, and more. Our goal is to be a source of light and human connection during these times.”

The staff will be reaching out directly to ticket holders for these events to facilitate donation and other options. If a child is enrolled in an After School class, a member of the Education team will reach out to discuss options as well.
