Moments spent in our theatre are more than simply witnessing and appreciating the art in front of you. To experience a TimeLine production is to absorb the energy around you, to immerse yourself in our lobby exhibits, to engage in conversation, and to share a moment together. We cannot wait until we can open our theatre again to create those moments with you once more—in a way that is as safe as possible. 

During this unprecedented year, we’ve created online programs to set the stage for future productions like Relentless and Campaigns, Inc. and to celebrate our past with Fiorello!. You can revisit all of this season’s past events on TimeLine’s YouTube channel. Plus this spring, we’ll explore The Chinese Lady and the new play development process with our Playwrights Collective. 

This is our reality: as of March 2021, TimeLine won’t return to producing live theatre during this 2020-21 season, which would have run through June 2021. And it’s still not clear when we will reopen. We’re hopeful as vaccines roll out and restrictions begin to ease, but there’s much work to do before we welcome you in person again.

We are monitoring guidelines from city and state health experts about re-opening. And we’re in dialogue with artists’ unions and other leaders within our industry about new processes and procedures that will best serve all who enter.

When we re-open, we anticipate having reduced capacity and greater social distancing at performances. Happily, one of TimeLine’s most beloved attributes is our ability to reimagine our theatre for every production. We’re able to design productions and seating arrangements to create not only dynamic artistic experiences, but also thoughtful floor plans that support safety.

We’re also preparing to offer streaming capability with upcoming productions for any who want to experience shows but aren’t yet quite comfortable attending in person.

We’re extraordinarily grateful for your patience, your continued support, and your compassionate curiosity about TimeLine’s well-being. Please know that TimeLine will continue to honor our mission and produce stunning work that engages you and connects us all to our community. Until we can be together again, please stay healthy, stay safe, and stay connected. And you can always check out our updates page to read the latest news.
