FYI: Theater Barn cancels season

The Theater Barn will suspend its 38th season after the July 3 performance.

If anyone was hoping to visit The Theater Barn, which we visited as a group during last year’s “Summer Casual Season” when our usual spot, the MacHaydn Theatre, was in flux due to the pandemic, forget it.

The owners of the summer theater in New Lebanon since its founding in 1984 have suspended the 38th season, effective at the end of the current run of Agatha Christie’s “Fiddlers Three,” which is being presented through next Sunday, July 3.

Allen Phelps, whose parents founded The Theater Barn, said the venue has not been able to attract the same level of attendance it had before the pandemic. Subscriptions have dropped by two-thirds, and single-performance ticket sales are off as well.
