OUR ANTI-RACISM COMMITMENT TO YOU
"BRUSH UP" IS BACK NOVEMBER 6!
This season we'll be talking with great actors and artists to get their insights into Shakespeare's genius and how his work has helped shape their artistic lives. And we're excited to announce our first two special guests as Tony Award nominee, Andrew Burnap, and Mixed Magic Theatre's co-founder, author & theatre artist Ricardo Pitts-Wiley.
SEASON 36 DELAYED UNTIL 2021
We will delay the opening of its Season 36 subscription season until fall 2021. With the previously planned 5-play lineup on hold, the organization will focus its efforts on virtual programming and education initiatives, as well furthering its commitment to becoming a more just, equitable, and inclusive organization.

The Gamm affirmed a need to examine the ways in which racism not only infects policing, but our own theater. We unequivocally acknowledge our participation in upholding and benefiting from exclusionary power structures, the harms this has caused, and forcefully commit ourselves to dismantling those structures within our own organization.
The purpose of today’s letter is to share our commitments to achieve lasting, systemic change toward becoming a more just, equitable, and inclusive organization. Read more>
