God is coming to Venice!

Winner of the 1978 Tony Award for Best Musical.

STAY TUNED FOR PERUSAL SCRIPTS FOR THE 2021-2022 SEASON.
Arts environments require risk, courage, vulnerability, and investment of our physical, emotional and intellectual selves.
Venice Theatre seeks to nurture spaces with strong safety nets that support that ethos without compromising a visceral and authentic experience for artists and audiences.
We believe that even in the absence of high-risk material, having pathways for response to unsafe conditions and harassment help to maintain the integrity of the work, its participants, and the organization.
