GiveBIG & Reboot


Like all of our fellow theatre companies, due to COVID-19 we were forced not only to postpone our spring production of Cabaret, but also cancel our fall show, which was to be announced this spring. While it was a difficult decision, it was necessary for the safety of our artists and audiences.

However, Reboot is committed to bringing Artistic Director Jasmine Joshua’s vision for Cabaret to life next year, aiming for a Spring 2021 production. While we are more fortunate than most, we not only lost ticket revenue, which accounts for most of our income, we also lost money through paid rehearsal space as well as marketing materials. Additionally, the Reboot Board voted to pay artist stipends to those who had already spent the better part of a month rehearsing and planning for the production. We are proud to have done right by our artists, many of whom are gig workers and relied on that income.

In light of these set-backs, Reboot has decided to suspend all productions in 2020 and focus on 2021. We would love to continue with our plan to produce two shows, but we need your help.

Donations to our organization ensure the continuation of Reboot’s mission in testing new interpretations of established works and in creating a safe space for artists to be who they are and build who they want to be. We are hopeful and trusting that taking a year off won’t impede our work or our momentum — our audiences and community are so strong and we will always be a pillar for equality and equity in theatre. In the meantime, we have some virtual goodies planned that we look forward to rolling out.

Reboot isn’t going anywhere. We hope you won’t forget about us.
