  • Players' Ring: Here's feedback from our recent opening

    We did it! We reopened!
    And we received wonderful feedback
    "I want to commend the Ring for its excellent COVID-19 protocols. 
    I felt very safe and relaxed and able to devote 100% of my attention
    to the show. And this one was certainly something very special.
    Job well done."
    Michael J. Curtiss, audience member
    "It was good to be back and see high quality live theatre.
    I felt very comfortable volunteering as an usher at the Saturday matinee.
    I will urge my friends who are my age to come during that time."
    Betty Lane, volunteer
    "The seats are arranged in groups of twos and threes, 6 or more feet apart with extra seats removed. It felt very safe (...) This was a magnificent performance and a beautifully written play. At the end the audience just sat in silence. We were so moved, we literally could not move (...)".
    Ellen Karelitz, audience member
