An Important Programming Update / COVID-19 Update – May 1, 2020
At American Stage, we recognize that we must continue to be patient. It is not yet time for us to reopen our doors. As much as we miss you, we know that we must continue to wait before we come back together. The health and well-being of all demand that we remain cautious and deliberate. So, for now, we will continue to postpone our programming at least through the end of June.
Eventually, our doors will reopen. When they do, things will look a little different. As we plan for social distancing within the theatre, we will take every precaution to help us all feel safe and comfortable experiencing our live performances together once again.
21st Century Voices: New Play Festival – Mainstage Selection
In Buffalo, NY, aging funeral home custodian Miles lives with his middle-aged daughter Mabel, who spends her days writing letters to prison inmates. When a court-appointed guardian threatens to take away their home, Miles sets out to set Mabel up with Todd, an inept mortician. It is a father’s fierce determination not to accept his daughter’s fate that ignites an endearing human comedy about love, loss, loneliness and the healing power of laughter.
