In response to domestic coronavirus developments, Stanford University is strongly discouraging all large-scale university gatherings of 150 people or more, effective March 4 through April 15. Stanford Live, in compliance with the university’s decision, is moving to cancel large-scale performances within this time frame. This performance was initially relocated to a new venue in Palo Alto. As of 3/7/20, this performance has also been canceled.
