ATC postpones its season

Arizona Theatre Company will postpone its 54th season again until later this year because of the recent increase in COVID-19 cases and restrictions that national theater unions have imposed. The organization recently made the difficult decision to delay the season with plans to reopen for live stage productions when it is safe to do so.

While Arizona Theatre Company will not produce live or streamed theater currently, its creative and artistic teams continue their work, including developing a jukebox musical that is based on the music of the band Chicago. A new musical about Supreme Court Justices Sandra Day O’Connor and the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg also is being created. Both musicals will be performed on stage when the theater company can safely resume in-person shows. These performances will be available exclusively to subscribers and theater supporters.

An audio play starring Tony Award, Drama Desk and five-time Emmy Award winner John Larroquette, written by Lauren Gunderson, is also being planned.

Arizona Theatre Company’s subscribers-turned-donors will obtain an exclusive look behind the curtain of the creative process with access to workshops, special digital performances and readings.

There are digital performances available to view, as well as Arizona Theatre Company’s podcast, “Hang & Focus,” which is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and YouTube. To learn more, visit arizonatheatre.org.
