The Guthrie and Illusion Theater cancel performances due to COVID-19
Local theaters are canceling long-awaited shows as COVID sweeps through the Twin Cities… again.
Driving the news: The Guthrie canceled four performances of “Emma” this week due to “multiple COVID-19 cases within members of the cast and crew.”
Illusion Theater, which had planned to start its run of “The History of Religion” tomorrow, also pushed its opening night to July 15 after a positive case.
Flashback: This isn’t the first time COVID has disrupted the Guthrie’s return season.
- The theater’s January opening of "A Raisin in the Sun” was pushed to April 30, and the April-to-June production of “Destiny of Desire" was canceled entirely.
Yes, but: Interested theater-goers can watch a free, open-air Shakespeare show at Twin Cities parks this month, Station Eleven style.
- Traveling troupe Classical Actors Ensemble is performing “Love’s Labor Lost” tonight in Arden Hills, with seven more performances through July 17. Picnics encouraged.
