CANCELLATION ANNOUNCEMENT

 

Dear Alley Repertory Theater friends,

After much careful consideration regarding the coronavirus pandemic, and with the state and national emergencies issued on Friday, the last performance of “A Funny Thing Happened on the way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City” will be Saturday March 14th at 8pm. While we believe in our theater hearts the show must go on…we are committed to the health and safety of our audiences, artists, and staff, and feel that taking this proactive measure is the most responsible thing to do. This is based on recommendations from the CDC, the State of Idaho Health Department and the City of Boise and from careful consideration of the Alley Repertory Staff and Board of Directors.

We are so deeply grateful for your support of Alley Rep and for your understanding. We have had a grand season in no small part thanks to your continued patronage.  If you have tickets booked for the March 19 thru March 22 performances of our show, and if it’s at all possible within your means, instead of a refund, we ask that you consider donating your tickets to the theater as a tax-deductible donation. The early closure of this show will put the future of Alley Rep. at risk as the set has been built and commitments made to actors and designers.  Your donation would go a long way in helping cover the costs of a show that would have been made by ticket sales.  Your commitment to sustaining Alley Rep’s mission will garner our spirits and energize us to imagine our future during these uncertain times

We also understand this is a tough time for every Boisean and we respect and honor all refund requests. Information for how to do that is available in your Eventbrite confirmation email or by clicking on the following link to find refund instructions:

We hope that you stay well and take care of yourselves, and we look forward to playing fiercely with you again in the fall.

Buffie Main
Artistic Director, Alley Repertory Theater
