From the Kennedy Center:

“The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts announces today that it will cancel all previously scheduled programs through April 25, 2021, due to the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, Washington National Opera’s spring productions and much of the late spring and early summer touring theater programs have been canceled. During this period, the Center will offer an extremely limited number (20 or fewer) of in-person performances, as conditions allow, and expand its online offerings with a new platform called Digital Stage+–a free benefit for donors, members, and subscribers–while continuing to develop robust arts education content for students across the country. These most recent cancelations in 2021 represent 384 ticketed events and a financial loss of $24.1 million for the institution, plus an additional $7 to $8 million of revenue from programs that had not yet been announced. Combined with the fall cancelations in excess of $50 million, the total earned revenue loss for FY21 now stands at over $80 million. Read More

We take a stand for George Floyd and for so many others who have lost their lives as a result of racial violence and bigotry.

Dimming the lights is a symbol. It is not the solution. Read More
