Live Performance Venues Asking For Relief From Congress

Help save the theater!!

Live performance venues are asking Congress for support and they need your help. Blumenthal Performing Arts wants people to reach out now, otherwise, some of our favorite venues might not be able to re-open. CEO Tom Gabbard joined us on QC@3 to explain what the Save Our Stages Act is. Tom tells us this is a bill put forward by two senators and a co-sponsor to help protect thousands of venues across the country, big or small. During this pandemic, many of these buildings have still had to continue to pay all of their venue costs. Tom also tells if we want to see live performances spring back, they need the federal government to make some investments.
