Last month, 18 professional Equity DFW theatres formed an alliance in an effort to support each other, come together to manage the crisis facing all arts organizations as a result of COVID-19, and to lead our industry in setting safety standards for patrons and artists alike. We are much stronger together than we are as individual theaters. This video was a joint effort and will be communicated simultaneously by all 18 organizations on Tuesday, May 5th at 10am as part of North Texas Giving Day Now. It illustrates the economic and community impact our combined 18 organizations have and signals to artists and audiences alike that we are working together to safely get our stage lights on as quickly as possible. This is just an intermission.
