Health & Safety: COVID-19  |  Updated May 15

As we all do our part to reduce the spread of coronavirus (Covid-19) by social distancing, The Bushnell remains closed to all performances. Our administrative offices are open and operating remotely. We are working to reschedule as many events as possible and are accepting renewals and deposits for the 2020-21 Broadway Season.

The health and safety of our patrons, staff, and visiting artists is our priority and we must all do our part to contain the spread of this disease. Learn more about our COVID-19 Guarantee.

In compliance with government orders to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), all performances and events scheduled at The Bushnell are currently postponed. We will reschedule as many events as possible. As soon as we have new event details, you will be notified. We appreciate your patience as it will take time to work with all scheduled performers on new dates.

If your event cannot be rescheduled, we will notify you and you will be automatically refunded.* 

We look forward to the time we will be able to welcome you back to The Bushnell. See our recently announced 2020-21 Broadway Series.

*Please note: Refunds are only available for tickets purchased directly through The Bushnell Box Office or online ticketing system. The Bushnell is not responsible for the refund practices put in place by secondary ticket providers.

Lending a Helping Hand

While we're waiting for our doors to reopen, essential businesses in our community are showing up every day to keep us all going. Below we've listed some ways you can support our local healthcare and restaurant partners who in turn support us throughout the year.

Donate Protective Equipment

Our healthcare workers are dealing with a shortage of basic protective equipment. Hartford Hospital and Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center need personal protective equipment (PPE) and/or charitable donations to help them stay safe on the frontlines of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Hartford Hospital and Saint Francis Hospital and Medical are also acccepting homemade masks. Both links provide lists of items you can donate, as well as guidance on how to make and donate masks.

Order Takeout

Many of our restaurant partners are providing curbside pickup and delivery options at this difficult time. As we all stay home to do our part, your patronage is much appreciated.

Stay Safe

We encourage you to take precautionary measures to ensure your health. Things you can do to stay safe are:

  • Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, nose and mouth. If you do, use a tissue.
  • Keep tissues on hand, and use them to cover any coughs or sneezes.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 30 seconds - here’s a list of 9 popular Broadway tunes to sing while washing for the appropriate time.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

We hope that you also follow the science, implement the recommendations of public health agencies, and continue to participate in the activities that make our world connected.
