FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, March 12th, 2020

MILL VALLEY, CAMarin Theatre Company (MTC) announces today that based on recommendations from the State of California and Marin County Health & Human Services to postpone or cancel large capacity indoor events, as well as the rising health concerns surrounding the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19)—it will cancel all upcoming performances of Kate Cortesi’s Love and Lauren Gunderson’s Natural Shocks

Kate Cortesi’s Love, which opened on Tuesday, March 10, was scheduled to run through Sunday, March 29th. All performances are cancelled.

Lauren Gunderson was scheduled to perform her one-woman play, Natural Shocks, on Monday, March 16th as part of the Bay Area Women’s Theatre Festival. Monday night’s reading is cancelled.

MTC is currently working to provide an online, recorded video option for current ticket holders to both Love and Natural Shocks, allowing patrons to engage with these vital pieces of theatre from the comfort of their homes, without risk to their health. MTC will be following up with patrons in the next week with more information.

At this time there are no plans to cancel or postpone performances of Jordan Tannahill’s Botticelli in the Fire or Antoinette Nwandu’s Pass Over, the final two productions of MTC’s 2019/20 mainstage season.
