Connecticut Allows Igloos and Outdoor Dining Structures

The structures will require safety precautions including proper ventilation using an entry door, two window-style vents, and sanitation on all touchpoints.

Zoom theatre has never looked like this! TheaterWorks Hartford will debut Sarah Gancher’s timely new play about the everyday banality of destabilizing democracy, Russian Troll Farm: A Workplace Comedy. Additional support comes from The Civilian, NYC’s experts of theatre “at the intersection of the theatrical and the real.” The collaboration creates a “site-specific work for the internet” inspired by the actual transcripts from the Russian government-backed Internet Research Agency in the run-up to the 2016 election.
