There isn't much funny about the coronavirus, yet we could all use a little laughter in our lives at this point.
Here's how Esther's is operating in order to keep our patrons, staff, and performers safe:
Luckily, we are closed for performances for what would have been the two weeks of SXSW (March 12-22). For now, we're sticking with the old motto "the show must go on" and are planning to be back starting March 26th.
Our Safety Plan:
We plan to keep to our existing schedule as much as possible, with extra precautions in place: a ramped-up cleaning regimen; hand sanitizer stations; extra training for our staff; and posted reminders of best practices for our patrons.
If circumstances change and it becomes necessary to cancel or reschedule any show, we will notify all ticket holders by e-mail ASAP, and will also post notices via social media and here at esthersfollies.com. As you can imagine, this is a tough situation for every live entertainment venue, and we appreciate your patience and understanding as we try to do what's best for patrons, performers, and our employees. Please know that everyone's safety is a top priority and is no laughing matter. Thank you!
To reduce crowd sizes, ticket sales for any event held at the Esther's through March 31 will not exceed 200.
Also, for events March 26th through March 31, any existing ticket holder who no longer wishes to use their tickets will be issued a credit, provided that they notify Esther's Follies by completing the below-linked form at least 24 hours in advance of the event.
Thank you so much for supporting the Follies!
Stay safe and we hope to see you all soon.
