Though live performances of "They Promised Her the Moon" by TheatreWorks Silicon Valley were canceled as part of the community's efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, TheatreWorks is thrilled to offer audiences the chance to experience the show from home through this video recorded performance of the recent production. 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.
