2020 Galaween Special

Announcing our Return to Mainstage with Virtual Fall Rep
World Premiere of TRANS AM, Award-Winning FROM GUMBO TO MUMBO Stream Live Nov 12-29

We’re proud to announce our return to mainstage programming with a pair of productions being streamed live from our stage November 12-29, 2020. The fall repertory includes the world premiere of TRANS AM, a new rock musical by Lisa Stephen Friday, and a new “unfiltered” version of the Helen Hayes Awards nominee and Charm City Fringe winner, FROM GUMBO TO MUMBO, by Drew Anderson and Dwayne Lawson-Brown.

Both will be fully produced as mainstage shows and performed and streamed live from our stage, building on and expanding the format of virtual summer programming from our Boiler Room Series, BRS LIVE. This innovative approach to theatre-making combines the excitement and immediacy of live performance with the necessary safety of distancing for artists and audiences.

Our Commitment to Anti-Racism

Horrific recent events have put the harm of systemic racism against black people into sharper focus for so many in our industry and in our society. In response, The Keegan Theatre commits to fostering an anti-racist environment in which artists, patrons, students, and arts advocates from all backgrounds can create and connect without the insidious and debilitating effects of prejudice, discrimination, and marginalization.



While we’re working hard to be as responsible as possible during this challenging time, it is worth acknowledging that we will sustain a financial hit. If you’re interested and able, please consider supporting Keegan until we’re able to open again:

We thank you all for your support and understanding, and we hope that you and yours are continuing to stay safe and healthy. Know that your well-being is important to us, and as soon as we’re able, we’ll be here to help you “Return to Good Company” at Keegan.

If you have any questions about Keegan’s plans for the future, our new commitment to anti-racism, our response to the COVID-19 crisis, or how you can help during this time, please feel free to email us at keegantheatre@keegantheatre.com.
