The Goodman Theatre on Monday announced it was canceling all remaining performances of “A Christmas Carol.” The Joffrey Ballet last week announced it was canceling all of its remaining performances of “The Nutcracker.” In all instances, the cancellations were due to COVID protocols among cast and crew.

“The health and safety of our artists, staff and audience remain our highest priority,” a statement on the Writers Theatre website stated.
