D.C. Launches Pilot Program for Indoor Performances at Select Venues

Six D.C. venues for concerts and other performances will begin hosting live entertainment through the end of October as a part of a pilot program announced Friday by Mayor Muriel Bowser.

The venues, which include City Winery, GALA Hispanic Theatre, Pearl Street Warehouse, the Kennedy Center, The Hamilton and Union Stage, will be required to provide detailed operating plans to the District for close monitoring for compliance, DCist reported.

Tickets must be sold or distributed in advance with no more than 50 people including attendees, performers, and staff in the venue at one time, DCist reported. Reserve seating must be provided, with patrons sitting at least six feet apart and a minimum of 30 feet from the stage if the performer is singing.

On Saturday night, the Kennedy Center hosted the first of five live performances featuring opera star Renee Fleming and singer/actress Vanessa L. Williams. Their performances were the first hosted by the center since the pandemic halted citywide performances nearly seven months ago.
