Info while hunkering in 5/10/2020


No one knows for sure, but according to Playhouse CEO and President Gina Gernaci, present plans call for FROZEN to open on August 15, 2020, three weeks later than originally planned.  This will be followed on September 22 by HAMILTON.  

All of this depends on the logistics of how to seat patrons, how they will enter the theatre, how to protect the cast, orchestra members, Playhouse Square personnel and the performers and technicians.  And, then there is the issue of how many of you will want to come.  Present surveys show that many will not make public appearances until there is vaccine and they “feel safe” to mix with masses of other people.
