The announcement comes a day after both Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Gov. Gavin Newsom on Thursday announced a “Safer At Home” order banning all gatherings outside of a single home.

The order requires non-essential businesses that require employees to report for work to shut down.

People who purchased tickets for canceled performances will automatically receive refunds, although theater officials warned they are
“working with greatly reduced staffing and your refund will be processed as soon as possible.”
