Aerosol scientists suggest that singing is an activity associated with an increased risk of audience exposure to the SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes COVID-19. In order to minimize that risk, the singers in shows presented at Blue Strawberry starting this August will all perform from as far upstage as possible. Our stage is 10 feet deep, and they will perform at the very back of the stage next to the wall. Supporting musicians will all be masked. We will also pull back our front row of seats 4 feet from the lip of the stage. This will create at least 12 feet of space between the singer and the front row of audience members. We have also reduced our inside capacity from 100 to fewer than half that number.
Joe Mancuso hosts a special one-time only event with three of St. Louis's premier interpreters of the Great American Songbook. Jeanne Trevor, Wendy Gordon and Joe perform the Jazz Standards they love the most, with the incomparable Arthur Toney at the Yamaha Concert Baby Grand Piano. Don't miss this show! They don't make 'em like this any more! The Blue Strawberry kitchen will have a special brunch prepared for the Leap Day Show!
