Update on COVID-19 for our guests

As a trusted source of arts and hospitality for over 50 years, Drury Lane has weathered many highs and lows while keeping the health, safety, and comfort of our valued guests and employees at the forefront of everything we do. While the situation regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) is fluid and ever-changing, we are actively involved in conversations addressing this issue. At this time, all theatre performances, scheduled Events, and Lucille Restaurant activity will move forward as planned.

Our number one priority continues to be the safety and well-being of our patrons and employees. We have enhanced our cleaning procedures (for a complete list click here) to help mitigate risk to patrons, staff, and performers while at Drury Lane.

We continue to follow updates from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and we are working closely with local and state health officials.  As new information and guidelines emerge, we remain prepared to follow any recommended actions as directed by these entities.

While we look forward to welcoming you to Drury Lane, we encourage anyone who is sick to stay home. If you have any questions or need any additional information, please call Drury Lane at (630) 530-8300 or refer to for the latest updates as well as our amended ticket exchange policy.

Enhanced Cleaning Procedures

We at Drury Lane Theatre and Events take pride in not only providing world-class theatre productions and service, but also ensuring our facility not only meets, but exceeds health and safety standards.

While the situation is fluid and ever-changing, the safety and well-being of our patrons and employees are our top priority. 

The unique design to our building already allows for many touchless features: no entrance doors to the public restrooms and touchless restroom sinks, soap dispensers, toilets and napkin dispensers. 

In addition to upholding Drury Lane’s high standards of cleanliness, maintenance and sanitation at our facility, we have implemented enhanced cleaning procedures and protocols. They include:

 • Every 30 minutes:
