A ghost light is a single bulb left burning whenever a theater is dark. Some argue that its function is to chase away mischievous spirits; others insist it lights the way for the ghosts that are said to inhabit virtually every theater, keeping them happy and contented. Either way, that light ensures that no one takes and accidental tumble off the stage. -PLAYBILL-
Despite the Strand having been dark for months, the ghost light in the front window represents the hope to return to the stage soon. The Strand appreciates the community support it has received over the years and looks forward to continuing to inspire, engage, and entertain the community through diverse programming as well as training and supporting the next generation of artists.
