An Important Programming Update / COVID-19 Update – March 18, 2020
We will return…We are deeply disappointed that we are not able to bring the magic of live theatre to our audiences at a time when the need for the catharsis that powerful live storytelling provides is so great.
American Stage plans to resume our mainstage season in late May with ADMISSIONS, followed by NEXT TO NORMAL in July and then, THE PEOPLE DOWNSTAIRS, opening its world premiere in September.
American Stage in the Park’s production of FOOTLOOSE and our Gala Under the Stars will be presented in October 2020.

When Henrietta Leavitt begins work at the Harvard Observatory in the early 1900s, she isn’t allowed to touch a telescope or express an original idea. Instead, she joins a group of women “computers,” charting the stars for a renowned astronomer who calculates projects in “girl hours”. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications in this luminous, witty and inspiring true story of a brilliant, history-making woman.
“…sheer magic…bursts of smart, infectious humor.” – San Francisco Chronicle
