Postponed until 2022| The Motley Experiment

The Motley Experiment is postponed until Feb 2021

Dear PUSH Friends and Family,

Amid the rising seriousness of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to postpone The Motley Experiment until Feb 2021. Our LA and Sacramento tours have been canceled.

This is disappointing news but forming safeguards to protect the well-being of our Artists, Audiences, Staff and Students is our priority. Developing The Motley Experiment has been an inspirational journey, and despite the current challenges we still hope to perform the production next year.

Due to the uncertainty of this situation, we ask that you support our Company Artists — those impacted the most financially — with loss of their performances, clientele and teaching jobs due to virus concerns with a donation

We’ll continue to monitor the situation while being mindful of our values of racial equity, inclusion and diversity. All Motley ticket holders are invited to a new free ticket to the complete show in February 2021.

Wishing you good health,

Raissa Simpson, Artistic Director
