BEDLAM’s Health & Safety Policy

 

With Health & Safety at the forefront of our minds, we developed the following policies and protocols to ensure that everyone entering our theatre remains safe throughout the run of the production.

In cooperation with Actors’ Equity Association, BEDLAM is producing HEDDA GABLER and THE WINTER’S TALE in compliance with a strict Fully Vaccinated Company agreement which ensures that the entire team of artists and staff are fully vaccinated. In accordance with this agreement, we ask that all audience members provide proof of vaccination and remain masked while within our venue.

Please note that our policy may change over the course of 2022 as we follow closely the ever-evolving guidelines set forth by the CDC, New York State, and New York City. We will notify all ticket holders in the event of any change to these policies. 

PANDEMIC SAFETY POLICY

  • All audience members will be required to show proof of vaccination before entering the theater (we will accept valid electronic passports or a physical CDC card at the door).
  • Non-vaccinated audience members will NOT be allowed into the theater at this time. If you have already purchased a ticket and do not plan on being fully vaccinated by the time of performance, we will refund your purchase.  
  • All staff, volunteers, and audiences will be required to wear face masks in all areas of the theater. Only on-stage performers and guest speakers may be unmasked. Masks will be provided for patrons who arrive without one.
  • A trained Safety Compliance Officer will be present at every performance to ensure that all safety protocols are being thoroughly implemented.
  • On the day of the show, we will send out an email that will include all of our up-to-date safety guidelines.
  • The Box Office will not be printing physical tickets. All patrons will receive e-tickets through email that can be presented on phone displays at the door.
  • House Managers and Ushers will be present to direct patrons and offer assistance.

The Venue: The Irondale  Center

 

The Space at Irondale is a performance space built within a long-vacant former Sunday school auditorium in the historic Lafayette Avenue Presbyterian Church in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. Opened in 2008, the Space at Irondale  now serves as a home for its resident company, the Irondale Ensemble Project, alongside numerous independent theater productions. The theatre has 28-foot ceilings, a 1,900-square-foot mezzanine/gallery, and original stained glass windows. The restoration retained the original scale, character and details of this distinctive space.

ACCESSIBILITY

The theater’s seating area is on the building’s second floor, which is accessible by mounting 27 stairs. Patrons who cannot mount stairs may use a handilift to access the second floor.

The theater has two all-gender bathrooms, with stalls wide enough to accommodate patrons who use a wheelchair.

Patrons who use a wheelchair can be seated on the deck level of the theater, with room for companion seats on either side. The chairs are 16 inches in diameter.

To make additional arrangements or for further information about the accessibility of the space, please email info@bedlam.org.
