MCC THEATER LOOKS FORWARD TO RECONVENING SAFELY AND WILL PRIORITIZE THE HEALTH OF EVERYONE WHO ENTERS OUR DOORS.
UPDATED COVID POLICY
In our efforts to create as safe an environment as possible, we are requiring that everyone who visits and works in the Robert W. Wilson MCC Theater Space be fully vaccinated and masked.
Audience members will need to provide proof of full vaccination along with a government issued photo ID with matching name at the point of building entry on performance date.
Fully vaccinated, per the CDC, means having had your second shot or single shot (based on vaccination type) of an FDA or WHO authorized COVID-19 vaccine two weeks (14 days) before your performance date. Proof of vaccination can be shown with one of the following:
- Your vaccination card
- Photo of your vaccination card
- Or via an official governmental mobile app or website; NYS residents or those who received a vaccination in NYS may present proof of vaccination via the Excelsior Pass app. For more information about the Excelsior Pass please visit https://epass.ny.gov.
Masks covering nose and mouth must be worn at all times inside the building. Bandanas, gaiters, or masks with vents or valves are not approved masks. If you do not have an approved mask, MCC Theater will provide one for you.
Children under the age of 12 will be able to attend performances once they are fully vaccinated.
As MCC seeks to make our theater more accessible to all, setting an appropriate and effective health and safety plan has been challenging. MCC will follow New York City guidelines and will currently not make exceptions for in-person attendees who are not vaccinated, regardless of the reason. We understand if you are unable to receive the vaccine, and we regret that we are not able to welcome you to a performance at this time. If necessary, we are happy to refund the price of your ticket.
As the situation with COVID-19 evolves, our protocols may change. We will continue to rely on guidance from the CDC and WHO, as well as local guidelines and restrictions. Policy changes will be updated on MCC’s website and all communication channels and ticket holders will be directly notified.
Your health and safety is important to us! We are committed to making our space as safe as possible for our community – our staff, artists, production crews, students and audience members. We’re asking for your help.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
If you are not feeling well, have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the last 14 days, or have been instructed to self-quarantine within the last 10 days we ask that you stay home. We will be happy to exchange your ticket(s) to another performance date within the run free of charge, credit the ticket amount to your account for a future ticket purchase, or process a full refund. You may also donate the cost of your ticket back to the theater. Simply call our box office at 646-506-9393 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT WE’RE DOING
We have expanded our safety initiatives by installing a Needlepoint Bipolar Ionization (NPBI) technology system, upgrading our HVAC system with MERV 14 & MERV 15 filters, placing standing HEPA filters throughout the building, as well doubling the facility deep cleaning schedule, and going contactless with digital ticket scanning and digital play bills, among other efforts.
