COVID-19 Protocols

COVID-19 Protocols

Updated (Aug. 25, 2022): SpeakEasy and the Calderwood Pavilion have updated our COVID-19 policies. These policies will be in place through October 9, 2022.

With the start of our 2022-23 Season on the horizon, we’ve been working with the Calderwood staff as they determine the COVID-19 protocols for the upcoming season.

In consultation with our staff, our audiences, and the latest health guidances from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, here is our updated COVID-19 policy:

  • VACCINATION: The Calderwood Pavilion is no longer requiring proof of vaccination to attend any performance. Our data shows that the vast majority of Boston theatre audience members are vaccinated, and we do strongly encourage all SpeakEasy audience members to be fully vaccinated.
  • FACE MASKS: Face masks will be encouraged for evening performances and required for all matinee performances.
    • MASKED MATINEES: Masks covering your mouth and nose will be required for all patrons during matinee performances and must be worn at all times except when actively eating or drinking concessions. Mask requirements will be enforced by our front of house team and we appreciate your cooperation.
    • MASKS-ENCOURAGED EVENING PERFORMANCES: Everyone is encouraged to wear a mask, except when actively eating or drinking concessions, for the comfort and safety of those around you. Mask wearing is not required and will not be enforced.

If these policies have at all changed your attendance plans for our upcoming season, please call the SpeakEasy office at 617-482-3279 to reschedule your tickets.

As always, if on the day of your performance you are experiencing any COVID symptoms, stay home and contact the Calderwood Box Office at 617-933-8600 to either reschedule your performance or receive a refund.

Thank you for doing your part in keeping our community healthy. We hope to see you at the theatre soon.
