HOW WE GOT HERE

  Majestic Marquee

Today, March 26th, 2020 was the scheduled start date for Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower at the Cutler Majestic Theatre. To explain how and why the venue will be empty tonight rather than filled with the songs of Bernice and Toshi Reagon, artistic director David Dower explains the conversations and events that led us to this moment over the last few weeks.

As we moved through the process of decision-making related to our response to the COVID-19 pandemic, I was on the phone with Toshi Reagon. Toshi’s a resident artist with ArtsEmerson—all the way through December of 2021—and her production of Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower was due to arrive in a few weeks.

ArtsEmerson Leadership Photo“For the past decade, we’ve circled the globe to bring you works that challenge, dazzle, and provoke. On stage and on screen, in our downtown venues and in neighborhoods all over Greater Boston, our goal has been to inspire connection across our differences and discover all we have in common. We hope you will help us spread the word about what it feels like, and what it means, to be a part of the ArtsEmerson community.”
