On the eve of the U.S. Presidential Inauguration, artists from coast to coast took a stand for continued vigilance, increased advocacy, inclusion, tolerance, and social justice.

More than 500 theatres across the U.S. took part in the Ghostlight Project to affirm their commitment to “diversity and inclusion” January 19.

Theatre artists gathered outside their theatres to “create a ‘light‘ for dark times ahead, and to make, or renew, a pledge to stand for and protect the values of inclusion, participation, and compassion for everyone regardless of race, class, religion, country of origin, immigration status, (dis)ability, age, gender identity, or sexual orientation.”

The initiative takes its name from the light that is traditionally placed on the stage of every theatre after the show is over and through the night. It is there partly for safety and partly as a nod to ghostly theatrical superstition.
