This moment continues to test the soul of our nation. We hope you are all safe and know how much you matter. We at Theater in Asylum are continuing to reflect and trying to grow.
We previously emailed you to say that our Debates presentation would be on Friday, June 19th. Soon after announcing, we realized that the date we picked is also Juneteenth, our nation's second Independence Day, commemorating the emancipation of Black people in the United States. We are sorry for the oversight and out of respect for Juneteenth, we are rescheduling our performance. We encourage our audience to learn more about Juneteenth here and here.
Our rescheduled date, will be the evening of Father's Day, Sunday, June 21st. A musical preshow featuring Ali Dineen will begin at 7:30pm, followed by the main event at 8pm. We are so proud of the show and hope you will join us.
The last thing today is that we'd like to remind New Yorkers that there is an election coming up! The election is Tuesday, June 23rd, and all New Yorkers are entitled to an absentee ballot, which must be requested by June 16th (that's on Tuesday!). You can request an absentee ballot here. Our full voter guide is here.
