When can we return to the Gateway?

At this time, guidelines from federal, state, and local governments say that we will be able to return to the Gateway for live performances sometime during the summer. However, limits on seating capacity will likely not make it financially feasible to produce shows in the space. Additionally, some of the upcoming renovations to the Gateway Theatre (including improvements to the air circulation and filtration systems) will not be completed by that time.
With this in mind, 42nd Street Moon is working towards a Fall 2021 return to live onstage performances, with the first show being produced at an alternate venue within San Francisco, and returning to the Gateway Theatre in early 2022.
In the interim, we will be producing live events this summer at alternate venues in San Francisco and throughout the Bay Area, so stay tuned!
What safety protocols will be in place at the Gateway?
42nd Street Moon wants to provide the safest space possible for you to enjoy live theatre once again. In order to do this, we plan to follow all guidelines and precautions per federal, state, and local guidelines, including at this time (but not limited to):
  • Distancing protocols in auditorium and lobby areas
  • Directing audience flow throughout the lobby and auditorium
  • Restricting audience capacity per current guidelines
  • Regular testing of all staff, artists, and volunteers
  • Ensuring all staff, artists, and volunteers have been fully vaccinated
  • Mask-wearing by all building occupants except those performing onstage
  • Incorporating no-touch protocols throughout the theatre
  • Temperature checks of patrons upon arrival at theatre
  • Sanitizing of entire theatre before and between performances
  • Improvements to the theatre air circulation and filtration system
