Theatres across the Washington, DC-area have united to provide a policy for public safety.

The Commitment

Updated October 1, 2022

Theatres across the greater Washington, DC area continue to unite to provide public safety for their audiences, artists, staff, and volunteers by requiring masks to be worn by all audience members while in performance spaces watching the show. Masks may be optional in other areas of the building, including lobbies. The use of N95 masks is encouraged. This requirement will remain in place indefinitely, and we will continue monitoring public response and providing appropriate updates.

These theatres are committed to the safety of all who work, perform, and visit their venues and invite audiences to join in the effort to slow the spread of Covid-19. They also have Covid protocols for performers and theatre staff.
