Hurricane Irma

Dear Theatre Lover,

We hope that you and your loved ones made it through hurricane Irma safely. If you are still without power, we hope that you get it back quickly.

We’re happy to report that the member theatres who have checked in are all doing well, including one of our member theatres in Key West, the Waterfront Playhouse. Most have sustained no damage, some have some minor damage, and as of Thursday September 15, quite a few still don’t have power.

Because of this, we are compiling information of show schedule changes due to the disruption from Hurricane Irma.

The list is in alphabetical order by theatre company, as our normal OnStage Now blasts are. We plan to update this part of our website as we learn more and Florida Theater OnStage, a local theatre journalism website, is also tracking updates.

We hope that you are doing well in the aftermath and if you haven’t yet received power back that it will come back quickly.


Andie Arthur
Executive Director
