As the reopening of theaters in the state of Massachusetts has been indefinitely postponed in Governor Baker’s reopening plan, New Repertory Theatre has been forced to make the following decision:
- NEW UPDATE! Postpone all performances of Stupid F##king Bird until January/February 2022
As a reminder:
- All performances of Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill have been postponed until 2021
- All performances of Angels in America: Millennium Approaches have been postponed until Fall 2021
- All performances of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee have been postponed until November/December 2021
- All performances of Thurgood on Tour, and Classic Repertory Company’s productions of The Scarlet Letter have been cancelled.
- At this time, the Mosesian Center for the Arts is still closed to the public.
We have evaluated all possibilities for fall production, including social-distancing procedures and live streamed performances. As our artists would need to begin the design process in October, and it is still unsafe for them to collaborate indoors in such a close proximity, we have arrived at the conclusion that we are unable to produce Stupid F##king Bird this winter.
To subscribers to the 2020/2021 season who currently have tickets to Stupid F##king Bird, no action is needed on your part. Your tickets will automatically be transferred to the 2022 performances as soon as the production’s new run dates are confirmed.
Please call our box office at (617) 923-8487 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We are responding as quickly as possible and greatly appreciate your patience.
We currently plan to open our 2021 season with Jelly’s Last Jam this coming March.
How can the pursuit of love and happiness drive one to madness? Emotions run high in this comedic, contemporary adaption of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull. An aspiring young director invites his close family and friends to a showing of his performance art, which fights against traditional theatre. Things quickly become complicated as his mother, a traditional actress, takes great offense to his work, and his girlfriend begins to flirt with his mother’s lover. As the refreshingly honest characters struggle with the disappointments of love, art, and aging, playwright Aaron Posner explores the true meaning of love and life.
