Streamed Performance: Gloria
About Streamed Performance: Gloria
Though live performances of "Gloria" at the Strand Theater in San Francisco were canceled as part of the community's efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, A.C.T. is thrilled to offer audiences the chance to experience the show from home through this video recorded performance, made in March 2020. The theater is offering tickets to their streamed performance in a "Pay What You Can" style so that you can choose your price based on what you can afford and how many people will be watching with you. Your ticket purchase goes directly back to supporting the theater as they plan for the future.
