We are truly in unprecedented times. The COVID-19 crisis is something we have never seen in our lifetime, in the world at large and in its implications for our theatre community. Given the uncertainty about public gatherings and when such activities will be safe to resume, due to circumstances beyond our control we must postpone our upcoming productions of “1776” at the Ahmanson Theatre, “King James” at the Mark Taper Forum and “Sakina’s Restaurant” at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. We remain committed to re-opening our theatres in the fall, including with our full Ahmanson 2020/21 Season and our soon-to-be-announced Taper and Douglas seasons.
For patrons with tickets to “Once on This Island,” which has already been postponed, we continue to explore all options, including the possibility of joining with other theatres to remount this production in the 2020/21 Season. We are also in the process of securing a slot for “1776” in the Ahmanson 2021/22 Season, immediately following its Broadway engagement.
