Dear Harlequin Patron,
As we embark on our 33rd season, we find a lot to be grateful for. First, for our past: our founders built a robust arts organization, providing opportunities for hundreds of artists and thousands of audience members throughout the region. For Scot and Linda’s work, we are grateful. For our present: in a time when the future of the arts looks bleak, when so many of our sibling theaters are closing across the country, we are still here. And let us be clear: we are still here because of you and your support during this time. For that, we are grateful. Finally, for our future: for the opportunity we have to create, to grow.
Our post-pandemic world is so connected by technology, but we have become increasingly disconnected from each other. It is in this world that the arts do two things we should rally behind, that we should all be proud of, and that we should never apologize for: the arts help us understand ourselves, and they help us understand each other.
I hope you enjoy our 33rd season. The selections we have for you are designed to be thought-provoking and entertaining. They are curated to be an answer for a difficult time. With so many crises around us, it’s easy to feel powerless, but the crisis in the American Theatre is one that you can have an immediate, measurable impact on. We hope you buy a season ticket.
Please come share space with us.
