We’re thrilled to welcome you back!
Dear Odyssey audiences,
After an extensive period of deep cleaning, painting and rebuilding, along with other Covid safety actions (some required and others as an optional extra measure of safety) we have reopened our doors and are ready to welcome you back to our beloved theatre. We are incredibly grateful to everyone who has continued to support us during these challenging times.
Immediately, there will be live events: a music festival and a new John Fleck play, directed by his longtime collaborator David Schweizer, preceding the newly re-imagined THE SERPENT on September 4. (As you might remember, due to Covid, THE SERPENT was halted after its second performance in March 2020, despite receiving rave reviews. Consequently, we’re thrilled to get it back on the boards.)
Additionally we’ll present a 3-day online streaming event: a specially filmed version of Olivier award-winning SILENT by Pat Kinevane. SILENT was first seen at the Odyssey in 2016 in a co-production with Dublin’s Fishamble theatre company, when it was described in the Los Angeles Times as ‘Krapp’s Last Tape as re-imagined by Madonna.’
Then, before the year is over, we’ll see a new project by Odyssey favorite director Bart DeLorenzo and a January opening of William Inge’s PICNIC, in a loving reimagining set in the tumultuous 1960’s with an all-Black cast. Directed by John Farmanesh-Bocca.
Our box office and lobby will be open starting July 6, Wednesday – Friday, 12-5 pm. And of course, on show nights! You can feel confident and safe knowing that we are COVID-secure and following the latest local requirements and CDC recommendations that pertain to areas of public assembly.
So, check out our website for specifics, make some reservations, put on your theatre shoes and let’s get on with the show!!
Ron, Beth, Sally, Mark, and the Odyssey gang
