It is with great regret we inform you that, because of the restrictions Governor Pritzker and Mayor Lightfoot placed on public gatherings of more than 250 people, and the guidance on COVID-19 from the Illinois Department of Public Health, we must cancel the world premiere run of Dhaba on Devon Avenue due to the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic. Notwithstanding these restrictions, we also feel that canceling the run is warranted to protect the health and safety of our artists, staff, and the rest of the Victory Gardens community.
This is a heartbreaking decision for all of us who so looked forward to sharing this incredible new work with the world, and for those artists and community members deeply invested in telling this story. The Board of Directors of Victory Gardens remains committed to supporting our staff and artists through this difficult personal and economic time.
If you have tickets to the production, we’ll be in touch soon to discuss your options. Thank you for your patience as we address the impact this cancellation has on artists, staff, and the rest of our community.
