18th & Union returns, renewed

Three shows in this month's return to live theater 18th & Union is pleased to announce new shows for Fall 2020. The venue has been closed since March due to the COVID-19 public health crisis. After six challenging months, we're reopening with three solo productions in September.

18th & Union is carefully and proactively following all public health recommendations. We've made improvements to the physical venue, acquired equipment to support live streaming over the Internet, and set up health and safety protocols for artists, audience members and others who will access the space.

REVIVE
Porscha Shaw and Jay O'Leary
Sept. 18-19 @ 7pm

REVIVE returns to our stage after its success in January. Jay will join virtually from Scotland, but Porscha will be live on our stage. REVIVE seeks to resuscitate the image of Blackness in America. Multi-hyphenate artists Porscha Shaw and Jay O'Leary explore the birth of joy through song, dance and spoken word.

The Pink Unicorn
by Elise Forier Edie
performed by Paula Wilson Nitka
Directed by Charles Waxberg
Sept. 24-27 @ 7:30pm

The Pink Unicorn is an award-winning solo theatre piece which tells the story of a Christian widow living in a conservative Texas town, whose life is thrown into turmoil when her teenage child announces they are "gender queer" and starting a chapter of the Gay and Straight Alliance at the local high school.

American Wulver
Created and Performed by Lyam White
Directed by K. Brian Neel
Sept. 25 @ 10pm

Fenton Talbot claims to be half-man, half-wolf, the descendent of an Old-World lupine faerie. A wolfman's story or a madman's confession? This solo play is a neurotic, seriocomic fantasia.

Health and Safety Protocols
We're developing and documenting clear guidelines for distancing, cleaning, and ensuring that we're operating safely, with the goal of protecting our staff, guest artists and producers to the greatest extent we can. The number of people in the performance space at any given time is limited to comply with the county and state health department mandates. Our Fall shows will have casts of just 1 or 2 supported by a lean production crew, and our approach to rehearsals, including tech and dress rehearsals, will be redesigned to minimize health risks related to the virus.

New Ventilation
While not required, we chose to install a new ventilation system in the performance space to increase the safety and comfort of all artists and guests at 18th & Union. It's quiet and effective, running at a CFM (cubic feet/minute) rate that will replace the air in the space about every 5 minutes.

Air Conditioning
Throughout We've added AC in the lobby and dressing rooms, increasing everyone's comfort in the warmer months of the year.

Ready to Live Stream
Since we don't know when we'll be able to welcome audience members back, we're relaunching with performances that will be viewable over Zoom. We've acquired the audio/visual equipment and have been steadily learning what we need to know.

As always at 18th & Union, tickets will be offered on a sliding scale to accommodate different budgets while also valuing the work of our partner artists. When public health authorities indicate it's safe, we'll begin to sell tickets for watching shows in person, while continuing to offer a live stream option. In this way, we will be able to accommodate multiple preferences for viewing, and to pivot quickly if public health recommendations change without warning. Even if we are required to go back into a more restrictive lockdown, the shows will go on with performers streaming from their homes.

All this is possible thanks to the generous support of so many.

Our landlords provided a partial rent abatement and helped us add the new AC and ventilation systems.

We received a significant gift from The Raynier Foundation, along with many vital individual donations.

These financial resources were critical in helping 18th & Union survive the past 6 months of closure and add the improvements we needed to reopen.
