Dear Friends,

On behalf of Playhouse Square and our partners at the University of Akron, we thank you for your purchase of tickets to see WAITRESS and your commitment to Broadway in Akron. We also thank you for your patience through this challenging period.

As we enter the seventh month of this long intermission, we are beginning to see some positive signs; however, we are still unable to answer the most obvious question you likely have: "when can we come back to the theater?"

WAITRESS, set for February 1 and 2, 2021, has now been canceled. Refunds will begin to process back to the original form of payment for anyone who has not yet received a refund starting October 5, 2020.

We look forward to sharing more with you as soon as we are able.

Until then, we thank you for your understanding, support and passion for that which unites us: live theater. We invite you to keep checking your inbox and this website for the latest developments.


David Greene

Senior Vice President of Programming
