UPDATE: March 18th, 2020
Over the course of the past week, we have been carefully monitoring the guidelines put out by Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health. We are relying on the experts to guide our decision-making process, and it became clear that in order to protect the health and safety of our staff, performers, and patrons, we needed to cancel the run of Plot Points in Our Sexual Development by Miranda Rose Hall. While we are deeply saddened to announce this, we feel a strong sense of solidarity with both the San Diego Community and our community of LGBTQ+ Folx. We will get through this, and be better for it.
You have likely heard concerns in the community over this epidemic’s impact on our economy. Diversionary will surely feel that impact. The theatre is offering full refunds for all tickets purchased for Plot Points in Our Sexual Development, but also encouraging those who are able to, to consider donating their ticket. If you would like your ticket refunded, please contact us at BoxOffice@diversionary.org or calling 619-220-0097.
Special thank you once again to Carlos Malamud, who generously sponsored this production in honor and memory of Dan Kirsch.
We thank you for your continued support and hope to welcome you back to our theatre very soon.
UPDATE: March 13th, 2020
Following guidelines released by Governor Gavin Newsom and the California Department of Public Health in response to the increasing challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic and COVID-19, Diversionary Theatre will be canceling the first weekend of performances for Plot Points in Our Sexual Development scheduled for March 26-29, 2020.
We plan on resuming performances as scheduled beginning April 2, with Opening Night on April 4, running through April 26.
For those booked into the first weekend of performances, we will be in touch with you soon about rescheduling your tickets to another performance.
Diversionary’s commitment to the health and safety of our family of patrons and artists is paramount. We are grateful to Governor Newsom for the clarity of these public health guidelines. When our performances resume, please know that we are enhancing our cleaning methods of our entire facility between performances to maximize sanitation and safety.
We will continue to monitor the situation, and we wish to assure our family of supporters and all of San Diego that we will institute every possible measure to ensure the continuing health not only of our many constituencies, but also of this institution.

HEALTH AND SAFETY IS OUR FIRST PRIORITY
Safety and security for our patrons, visitors, artists and employees are always our highest priority. We are keeping track of the CDC’s evolving recommendations for avoidance and containment of the coronavirus. We are being proactive and thoughtful about precautions. Until further notice, Diversionary’s operations will continue without disruption, as we work to keep audiences, artists, staff, volunteers, and guests safe and comfortable.
At this time all performances are proceeding as scheduled.
To help us keep our theatre healthy, we have provided staff with CDC resources for more information and best practices. We are encouraging everyone to follow CDC guidelines to regularly wash their hands, cover a cough or sneeze, and remain at home when feeling unwell.
We are committed to a sense of calm and normalcy. We provide an integral service to the San Diego community through our arts education and mainstage programming, and we are dedicated to fulfilling this need. Thank you for supporting our work at this crucial time. And thank you for your help in keeping our community safe and healthy!
