If you are a theater buff it may have been a long time since you actually attended a live performance. The COVID pandemic has a direct effect on live theater in our area. Fortunately, we are starting to see live performances return to our community theaters. For the Denizen Theatre in New Paltz, this is exciting news. They were one of the many theaters that had to suspend performances during COVID.

The Denizen located at Water Street Market in New Paltz, NY is what they call a black box theater. It is definitely a space that would not have been COVID-friendly. It is an intimate experience and has limited seating. Most of the performances are designed to be interactive with the audience. The seating is close and often the performance unfolds in the space that includes the audience. It is up close and personal theater.
