Many Baltimore and Maryland attractions and theaters have had to cancel or postpone shows in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

“In uncertain times, it is art that we turn to for escapism, joy, and comfort, said Ron Legler, President of The Hippodrome Theatre.” “We are looking forward to welcoming you back into the theatre in the very near future. When that day arrives, and this intermission comes to an end, the thrill that live theater brings will feel more special than ever before.”
