The Playhouse doors reopen on July 14
Yes, the show must go on — just not yet! We are thrilled to announce that our stage will reopen on July 14, featuring two Tony Award-winning musicals, Next to Normal and Ain't Misbehavin'; and a new comedy, Tiny House — the perfect antidote to physical distancing. We miss you and can’t wait to see you at the Playhouse this summer!
For 90 years, the Playhouse has been a communal place to share laughter, tears, catharsis, intellectual stimulation, enlightenment, and just pure joy; and it will be again. This season, we strive to inspire, to engage, and to connect. All the world’s a stage — let us take you to that astonishing world.
Productions of Antigone and Blues for an Alabama Sky have been postponed until future seasons. Season ticket packages and single tickets are on sale now. All current season ticket and single ticket holders will be contacted with further information later this week.
