Ixion Ensemble has canceled their upcoming production of "Begets: Fall of a High School Ronin", which was slated to open late March, due to rising COVID concerns.
"While we are saddened by the decision, we felt this was the most prudent path for the safety of our actors," notes Ixion Artistic Director jeff croff. "This show was going to require large amounts of stage combat and would have kept a cast of twenty in close proximity for multiple hours a day for rehearsals. We felt this put our production at odds with guidance for safety during the pandemic. We hope to revisit the production in a future season."
Ixion still plans to go forward with the remainder of its season at this time.
