Actors' Equity Association has released a statement, commenting on the COVID-19 outbreak at the Firehouse Theatre.
See the statement below:
"Our hearts go out to the members of the cast and crew at Firehouse Theatre. Just this recently, Equity put Firehouse Theatre on its safety spotlight for refusing to use an Equity safety plan and follow Equity's safety guidelines. For months, we have said that the pandemic must be under control with adequate testing and contact tracing for live theatre to resume safely, and now the entire theatre community is reminded just how critical Equity's safety guidelines really are." -- Mary McColl, executive director of Actors' Equity Association.
