It is with great sadness that we announce that Musically Human Theatre will be on hiatus effective as of December 15, 2012.
As many of you may or may not have known, the past several months have been extremely challenging for Musically Human Theatre. Being that we did not reaching our fundraising goal in September, the reality of our financial situation has made it necessary to reevaluate the future of Musically Human Theatre.
As much as we had hoped to continue produce powerful works of musical theatre, it became evident after our production of "Next to Normal" that we need to immediately close the 2012-2013 season. With our current situation, there’s no alternative.
Our primary intent has and continues to be to preserve the future of Musically Human - and our hope was to save the season, too. Simultaneous efforts to accomplish both are simply unattainable. We must ensure that shows go on the Musically Human stage for years and that can only happen if we pause, plan, and prepare for strong seasons in the future.
By canceling the current season, we preserve and protect the ability to serve the New York City community in the future. Musically Human intends to reopen and continue its mission of presenting engaging, socially relevant works of musical theatre. All ticket holders will receive information in the coming days.
We are in the process of figuring out what will be needed for long-term viability. We will continue to communicate with our community in this process. We appreciate the patrons who have supported us during this time and we look forward to seeing you all again when Musically Human returns.
