*Heath and Safety Protocols*

Over two years ago, live arts was struck hard by Covid-19. With many theatres unable to create or share their work during a very trying time, we are grateful for the opportunity to welcome you back into a creative space, where you can experience amazing storytelling live and in-person once again. Live arts has been able to make a return due in large part to vaccines and necessary safety precautions being put in place. As Covid is still a concern, we kindly ask that you keep your mask on at all times throughout the performance as required by our production. This is for the protection of our artists as well as your fellow audience members. Thank you for your assistance in keeping each of us safe!


The empowHER Reading Series is made possible in part with public funds from Creative Engagement, a regrant program supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature and administered by LMCC.
