UPDATE 3/12/2020: All remaining performances of The Book of Mormon, Antipodes, and Block Party at the Ahamanson Theatre, Mark Taper Forum and the Kirk Douglas Theatre are cancelled due to a directive from the California Department of Public Health and a mandate from the County of Los Angeles to help lessen the spread of the COVID-19/novel coronavirus.
“The need to cancel a production is never easy, as it impacts many people in our community, including our dedicated staff, artists, and craftspeople. However, in these most difficult of times, we must keep our entire community safe, and that will remain the most important factor in how we continue to respond to the current moment.
We will keep you updated as new information becomes available. We are contacting current ticket holders via email, but please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Your ongoing support of Center Theatre Group is deeply appreciated and absolutely vital as we continue our mission to serve the diverse audiences of Los Angeles by producing and presenting theatre of the highest caliber, by nurturing new artists, by attracting new audiences, and by developing youth outreach and arts education programs.
We look forward to the moment that we can once again raise the curtain at the Ahmanson, Taper, and Douglas and celebrate the power of theatre with you.”
Michael Ritchie, Artistic Director
Meghan Pressman, Managing Director/CEO
