Throughout this crisis, we have made extraordinary sacrifices for the sake of public health, and this decision is no different. We thank our community for their understanding and their flexibility. We encourage everyone to keep up their mitigation steps so we can enjoy the Lerner once again in 2021.”
The theater will be communicating with ticket holders for upcoming shows.
