Cabaret in the Robards

Running Time: ~60–90 minutes

We’re going back into the Robards this summer!

Join us for a series of special performances to benefit the Playhouse as we begin re-opening our campus and bringing audiences back into Jason Robards Theatre. Each star will bring their own unique show to the stage, featuring music, song, comedy — and talent. Sure to re-inspire your love of live theater after a long year without it, these cabarets are not to be missed!

Your safety is our top priority

We are gathering indoors with your help. All patrons, staff, and volunteers for these events must wear a mask at all times. Before purchasing a ticket, please take a look at our COVID-19 health & safety protocols here.

With safety guiding us, we’re making tickets available in stages. We will go on sale for all performances at 50% capacity. When local COVID case counts allow, we’ll release the remaining seats so we can have a full house.

We will have timed entry for each evening, and ticket holders will be notified of their specific arrival window prior to the date of their ticketed performance.
