As of this Canada Day 2022, audience members at any Mirvish theatre will no longer face a mask mandate when attending a show.
The move follows similar announcements at the Stratford Festival, Shaw Festival, Roy Thomson Hall and Massey Hall. Those venues have already dropped a mask requirement for attendance at their shows.
July 1, 2022 will also be the date that Broadway audiences will no longer have to mask up to take in a show, as announced by the Broadway League.
With several shows playing this summer in Mirvish theatres, including the blockbuster Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, 2 Pianos 4 Hands, and &Juliet, the move is will affect thousands of patrons.
Despite loosening the rules, in a statement, Mirvish productions does still recommend that patrons wear a mask covering the nose, mouth, and chin.
