Ford's Theatre Sequestration Update
Ford's Theatre Society programming (including the musical Hello, Dolly!, the Investigation: Detective McDevitt walking tours and the one-act play One Destiny) is not affected by sequestration and will continue as scheduled. We do not expect any changes to operating hours or National Park Service ranger programming at the Ford’s Theatre National Historic site for spring 2013. The National Park Service is exploring a number of plans to satisfy the automatic spending cuts caused by sequestration. As NPS finalizes its plan for the Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site, we will do our best to inform the public.
