This is not the first production that ended early due to COVID-19 and the highly contagious variant of omicron.

The Guthrie Theater on Sunday canceled the remaining performances of A Christmas Carol due to “multiple cases of COVID-19 among vaccinated members of the Guthrie cast and staff.”

Meanwhile, several restaurants and venues across the Twin Cities are canceling their New Years parties and closing for the weekend due to omicron and COVID cases among employees.
