JANUARY 2021 | VOLUME 199
Dear theatre lovers and friends,
Welcome back to theatre, such as it is, in 2021.
There’s still local theatre to be seen—mostly online, for now. But some PuSh shows are scheduled to be seen live later this month. Fingers crossed. Check our On Now and Coming Soon pages for specific information. We will continue to update listings daily as we receive updates from the companies about their plans.
And keep the faith. Live theatre will survive this plague, too.
