Canceled by COVID-19, Jewish Women’s Theatre Play to Premiere Via Zoom

Back in March, the Journal ran a story on the Jewish Women’s Theatre’s salon show “Sex, Addiction & Love” in the 21st Century” after attending a rehearsal in advance of its opening at The Braid. Alas, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the show did not go on, but nearly four months later, it will make its debut virtually this weekend. 

“When Governor [Gavin] Newsom announced new policies to protect the public health from COVID-19, our live performances of the last two shows of our 2020 season had to be postponed,” Ronda Spinak, JWT’s Artistic Director said. “As soon as we could do it safely, we rehearsed and prepared the show for Zoom in a proper, socially distanced way, and now it’s ready for virtual curtain up. Not only that, but during the quarantine, our wonderful JWT volunteers called each of our subscribers to let them know that we would be back as soon as possible. We’re enormously touched that not a single one asked for a refund. And we’re confident that our Zoom version of this great show will not disappoint.”

“When we began rehearsing this new show in February, we had no idea that our world would soon turn upside down and there would be no live performances,” added director Susan Morgenstern. “As we strove to ensure that none of the magic would be lost in our Zoom performances, there were many challenges. How could we create a socially distanced love scene? Based on our Zoom rehearsals, I’m delighted to report that the actors’ performances feel even more personal, filled with emotion and plenty of passion.”

Performances will take place June 27 at 8 p.m., June 28 at 4 p.m. and June 29 at 7 p.m. Cost: Free for subscribers and those who bought tickets in March, $20 for all others. Visit the website to register.
