Shakespeare Theatre Company postpones ‘Our Town’ and ‘Much Ado’

Season is paused in hopes omicron will subside in the spring.

Shakespeare Theatre Company’s production of Our Town — originally scheduled to run from February 17 to March 22, 2022 — has been postponed. The show, directed by Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul and featuring a cast of DMV-based actors, will be moved to May 12 – June 12, 2022. To accommodate this adjustment to the season’s calendar, Simon Godwin’s long-awaited production of Much Ado About Nothing will be moved to the 2022/23 season, with specific run dates to be announced later. Ticket holders for both shows will receive further communication soon regarding new performance dates.

Although data suggests the omicron variant is peaking, the theater believes audiences will feel more comfortable returning to its spaces in the spring. Executive Director Chris Jennings states, “It is imperative that we make choices to help protect the theater as well as our community. The decision to pause our season until March aims to protect the staff, artists, and audiences of the Shakespeare Theatre Company.”

Shakespeare Theatre Company looks forward to welcoming audiences back for the remainder of an incredible season starting with The Merchant of Venice in March, Our Town in May, and Red Velvet in June. Jennings continues, “We thank our audiences and the DC theater community for their understanding, support, patience, and their continued ability to adapt.”
