As most of you are aware, New York City will require proof of vaccination for indoor performances beginning September 13th. We will be enforcing this policy for all upcoming performances, and ask that all audience members, regardless of vaccination status, remain masked. All staff and performers will be vaccinated, performers may not be masked. Audience can provide proof of vaccination with a government issued I.D. along with a COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card or the Excelsior Pass App. We are navigating this day to day just like all of you so please be patient with staff when you attend your next Brick event. We love all of you.
