COVID-19 and 18th & Union: The Reopening
"I'm simply saying that life, uh... finds a way."
-Jeff Goldblum, Jurassic Park
18th & Union is pleased to announce new shows for Fall 2020. The venue has been closed since March due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. After six challenging months, we’re reopening with three solo productions in September and a full slate of world premiere plays in October.
18th & Union is carefully and proactively following all public health recommendations. We’ve made improvements to the physical venue, acquired equipment to support live streaming over the internet, and set up health and safety protocols for artists, audience members and others who will access the space.
