The Broad Stage at the Santa Monica College Performing Arts Center announced Wednesday it is postponing live, indoor performances until next summer at the earliest.

Last spring, The Broad Stage announced its 2020/21 season, hopeful that it would be able to resume in-theater performances in January. But live performances remain sidelined by the coronavirus pandemic and in compliance with state and county health officials, and with the guidance of Santa Monica College campus leadership, the stage will remain dark until next year.

Also, dates have not been set for the world premiere of the mobile chamber opera, “Birds in the Moon,” which had been announced for Fall 2020.

The Broad Stage is planning to announce an updated performance schedule before the winter holidays, and at that time will communicate to subscribers about alternatives regarding purchased tickets.

During the hiatus for in-person programming, The Broad Stage is continuing its work of curating a mix of virtual and outdoor programs for the months ahead. The programs will build on current digital offerings, including “The Journey,” a newly commissioned work from mentalist Scott Silven beginning Oct. 20.
