How COVID-19 is Affecting the Arts

UPDATED! In North Texas, everything in the performing arts has been canceled, postponed, or moved online. Here's the latest.

published Thursday, May 14, 2020


EDITOR'S NOTE: This story was originally posted on March 12, and will be updated throughout the COVID-19 crisis. Latest update: 9 a.m., Saturday, May 23.


North Texas — Around the country, theater, dance and music performances are being cancelled because of the threat of the spread of COVID-19, or the Coronavirus. The World Health Organization has declared it a pandemic.

Across the country, entertainment events, including concerts and performing arts events, museums, movie theaters, sports, bars and restaurants have been temporarily shuttered. In North Texas, festivals and events, including the St. Patrick's Day Parade and Fort Worth's Main Street Arts Festival have also taken a hit. Dallas County and much of Texas (and the country) is either in or on the verge of a lockdown, with gatherings of 50 or more people restricted.

In local arts, the first cancellation was the tour of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, presented by TITAS/Dance Unbound, which was to happen March 13-14 at the AT&T Performing Arts Center's Winspear Opera House. TITAS has since canceled the other performances in the season, and moved its Command Performance Gala to August.

On March 12, TITAS and ATTPAC released a statement that the performances will be rescheduled.

The Canadian dance troupe Rubberband, which was to appear in Dallas via TITAS/Dance Unbound, is one of many arts cancellations

"TITAS is asking all ticket holders for these performances to be patient while it works with Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater to find new dates. All ticket holders will be notified by March 31 as to their options.These options may include a new performance date, using tickets for another performance, refunds, or turning the tickets into a donation to support the nonprofit TITAS during a period that will prove challenging for all nonprofit arts organizations."

That is an important point, because this is the kind of thing that can kill arts groups: Because of the cancellations, thousands of professional jobs in the arts — in full-time, part-time, and contract positions — are at stake.

And it's not just ticket sales that could take a hit. Because of the effect that the pandemic has had on the stock market and the world economy, donations from individual donors and businesses are at risk, similar to the economic hits after 9/11 and the 2008 recession.

In the past week and a half, virtually every North Texas arts group has announced cancellations or postponements, from the big-budget organizations like Dallas Theater Center, Dallas Symphony, Dallas Opera, Fort Worth Opera, Texas Ballet Theater, and Fort Worth Symphony, through mid-size groups and small outfits like Prism Movement Company and Shakespeare Everywhere.

The Dallas Theater Center suspended two productions, American Mariachi (which was supposed run March 14-April 5, and is a co-production with Chicago's Goodman Theatre, where it is slated to run April 25-May 31); and Dominique Morisseau's Pipeline, April 3-May 3, which had already started rehearsals. American Mariachi is now available to watch online, for purchase (or free if you already had a ticket).

"As we all navigate this uncharted waters, we’re reminded that the heartbeat of our community is shared moments of creating or experiencing theater together. While nothing can fully replace those in-person connections and conversations that live theater generates, we are developing a digital version of our American Mariachi performance so we may remain connected with you."

Many groups and artists are offering streaming and online performances. Read our story about artists and arts groups putting their work out there. But those alternatives are not going to make up for the loss of revenues and income.
