From Annenberg Center, March 11, 2020:
The health and safety of all who use the Annenberg Center is our first priority.

There is an understandably high level of concern as the coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads, and we, along with the University of Pennsylvania, are closely monitoring this evolving situation.

On March 10, the University strongly recommended that events of 100 people or more be cancelled or postponed. Following this guideline, and erring on the side of caution, we are postponing or cancelling the following events: Danú, The Crossing with Maya Beiser, SFJAZZ Collective, Trinity Irish Dance Company, and Daedalus Quartet, as well as all public-facing guest events and Penn student performances through April 15.

This weekend’s world premiere performances of The White Lama will take place as scheduled in the smaller Harold Prince Theatre. We will be taking extra measures to maintain a healthy environment for audiences, staff, and artists, including bolstering housekeeping efforts and implementing new procedures for our ushers and concessions staff. If you are feeling ill or are not comfortable attending your ticketed performance due to the coronavirus situation, we will offer fee-free ticket exchanges. Contact the box office (215-898-3900) for more information.

We understand this news will be very disappointing to many, as it is for us. If your performance is postponed, your tickets will be automatically transferred into the new date. If your performance is cancelled, or if you cannot make the new date of a postponed performance, you have the following options:

  • exchange your tickets into a future performance at no additional charge;
  • receive a credit on your account for the value of your tickets;
  • donate the value of your tickets as a much-appreciated gift to the Annenberg Center’s Annual Fund; or
  • request a refund.

Contact the box office at 215-898-3900 for more information about your tickets.

We will continue to follow the University’s guidelines and will follow up as the situation develops. For more information about Penn’s response, please visit
