Due to the extension of Governor Cuomo’s Pause restrictions for Suffolk County, and out of consideration for the safety of our audiences, volunteers, staff, and cast and crew, the Hampton Theatre Company has cancelled the production of A.R. Gurney’s “Sylvia” that had been tentatively scheduled to open in Quogue on May 21.
When the production was first postponed in March a week before the scheduled opening, the company had hoped to present its revival of this charming and poignant comedy in the May-June slot originally reserved for Lucas Hnath’s “A Doll’s House, Part 2.”
Undaunted and holding fast to the imperative that “the show must go on,” the HTC has already obtained the rights to produce both of these cancelled plays as bookends for the 2020-2021 season, with “Sylvia” slated to open in September and “A Doll’s House, Part 2” capping the season in May.
The 2020-2021 season will also feature four performances of a special holiday show on the weekend of December 11-13, 2020, and a three-week run of the David Lindsay-Abaire comedy, “Rip Cord,” in March of 2021.
At this time, all plans are tentative based on progress in containing the coronavirus and the potential requirement of extending social distancing protocols and safety considerations. Complete details on the 2020-2021 season are in development, and tickets and season subscriptions are expected to go on sale on August 15, 2020.
