A Message from Theatre Philadelphia

Jul 16, 2020

Theatre Philadelphia supports the artists who have come forward to address and call out unsafe spaces, racism, micro-aggressions, sexual misconduct, and tokenism within our community. We express our gratitude to those who have come forward requesting action and accountability.

Our Board is committed to the work of developing new protocols around the Barrymore Awards, namely in defining parameters for how and when an award should be rescinded. We will evaluate those procedures, collect more information, and make a statement by September 1st.

Theatre Philadelphia will continue our own ongoing anti-racism work. We thank you for your patience as we take our time to address these serious matters. All of us at Theatre Philadelphia are committed to transparency and we will encourage community input as we move ahead in our process.

-Theatre Philadelphia Staff and Board
