“No winter lasts forever, no spring skips its turn.” – Hal Borland
After a long pandemic-laced winter, Spring has indeed decided to take her turn. Thank goodness. As we talk about spring, the words “return,” “renewal” and “rebirth” take their place like wonderful newly discovered pearls. Here at the Center, these lustrous gems are even more poignant.
Spring has brought us a return to a semblance of normalcy. While we are able to relax some of the Covid-19 governing protocols, such has requiring masks and vaccination/test checks, we remain vigilant to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all patrons. We are so grateful to see you returning through our doors. We love seeing your fully smiling faces or just your fully smiling eyes. There’s no us without you, so thank you for being with us.
And what’s that they say? March returns like a lion and goes out like a lamb? Well, in our case, March returned like a lion and will roar to the end. The lion has brought a record-breaking month in the number of performances. We’re thrilled to be able to provide so many different offerings of live performances to our community. It makes our world go round.
Spring is a time of renewal and at the Center, it is a time of announcing our upcoming seasons for our Resident Companies and Broadway. Your investment in spring guarantees an abundant harvest of performances that kick off in the fall and we’re kicking off a robust Broadway season with the mother-load, Hamilton. Our excitement for the season is not just about the performances, but both a return and renewal of the Hult Center taking more ownership in our Broadway season, setting a new direction this season and for the future. Stay tuned.
Finally, this is a time of rebirth. Like the blossoms on the tress, so many are coming back to experience the joy of live performing arts. Though the pandemic gave us oodles of entertainment in the digital realm, nothing replaces live performing arts. Every performance is original and ongoing performances are reborn each night. And we come together, our hearts resonating to be born into something new.
Happy spring! May your flowers be many and your weeds be few.
– Theresa Sizemore, General Manager of the Hult Center
