FALL 2022

Our key audience safety protocols are outlined below to help you plan ahead for your visit. We will continue to follow the latest advisories from our health and government officials, and these policies are subject to change as circumstances evolve and/or with their guidance. The most up-to-date information will always be found here and ticket holders will be proactively notified of any policy changes for the shows they are attending. Please reach out to with any specific questions you might have.

We recognize that mask mandates are being eased in many public spaces as more tools for individuals to protect themselves depending on their own risk- and comfort-levels (including vaccinations, antiviral medication, and high-quality filtration masks) are now widely available. We welcome and encourage mask-wearing to protect yourself and others, but we will not be requiring them at most performances. If you would feel more comfortable attending a performance with a fully masked and vaccinated audience, please select one of the performances that best accommodates you.

We strongly encourage all audience members to get vaccinated and boosted in accordance with public health guidelines. As public health experts and officials have long-stated, this is our best protection against severe illness and hospitalization from Covid-19. With 89% of the adults in our community fully vaccinated—as well as continued evidence that vaccination is not a major determinant of the spread of Covid-19—we will no longer require proof of vaccination before entering the theater except at designated performances.

Certain performances each week will be designated just for you! For the entire run of HOUND DOG, all Wednesday evening and Saturday matinee performances will require masks and proof-of-vaccination, and Bars Nova will be closed for these select performances so that audience members can remain fully masked for the entirety of the performance.

The HVAC system at Ars Nova @ Greenwich House has been upgraded to the highest compatible MERV filters with added air scrubbers; additionally HEPA-filter air purifiers are used throughout high-traffic areas of the building. Our public spaces are cleaned each morning, and high-touch areas of the lobby, bathrooms and theater are disinfected again before each performance.

Stay home if you aren’t feeling well! If you cannot attend the show due to illness, email with your full name and the performance date and time in the subject line and we’ll do our best to help you find another performance to attend later in the run.
