An Open Letter from the Metro Atlanta Arts Community in the Wake of the Lyric’s Closing
On Tuesday, March 7th, we were devastated to hear that the Atlanta Lyric Theatre has shut down after 42 seasons. Not only is its closing a loss for our vibrant industry, it is also an indicator that if left unchecked, the crisis in the theatre and arts sectors caused by the COVID-19 shutdowns will continue to ravage our community. To mitigate the ongoing effects of the crisis the arts leaders of Metro Atlanta have come together to call for systemic change that will allow the arts to thrive again.
Please join us in this effort.
