CHANGES/UPDATES FOR TONIGHT'S PERFORMANCE

Hello –
Due to a medical situation (not related to COVID) within our creative team, tonight’s performance (Saturday, September 18) of The Winter’s Tale at Inwood Hill Park will be an “unplugged” open rehearsal. 

What does this mean?

  • we will be performing without electricity
  • we will not have amplified sound 
  • It will be more challenging to hear as we will be competing with the sounds of the city
  • we will not be able to provide our accessibility tools (captions and audio descriptions) 
We will still be at the park for our 5:00 pm sharing Shakespeare with the world. We would love to see you! But we thought it would be a good idea to let you know, in case you would rather join us for a different performance. The situation is ongoing. We are working on longer term solutions. Check our website for any other adjustments. And if you are still planning to join us tonight, see below for details about getting to the park, etc.
 
Thank you for supporting live theater! Please email us at info@nysx.org if you have any questions.

GETTING TO INWOOD HILL PARK:

YOUR COMFORT:

  • Feel free to bring drinks and snacks
  • Chairs are not provided, so please feel free to bring your own camp chairs or a blanket

COVID SAFETY: 

For the safety of you and our team, we ask that you wear a mask at any time you are within the boundaries of our space, and are not sitting with your group (yes, even though we are outside… an abundance of caution is worth it!)

BATHROOMS: 

the bathrooms closest to our stage have been vandalized (someone lit them on fire!) and are OUT OF ORDER. There are two options for bathrooms as you enter the park. We recommend you stop on your way in:
