As you know, entertainment events have been canceled for the last year, some permanently. However, shows, concerts and other events are slowly beginning to come back. Plans are in the works for reopenings, and we are discussing with our employers and venues as to when and how that will happen.

Continue following applicable social distancing guidelines and follow appropriate health procedures. Get a vaccine if you are willing and able. Soon we will put away the ghostlight, unload the trucks, and again take the stage! Stay safe.
