UPDATE RELATED TO COVID-19:

I've made the decision to temporarily close QED, starting tonight March 14th through at least March 29th--we'll then take things on a week-by-week basis.
Simply put, QED is my life. But I don't want to endanger the community I hold so dear. So for now, the responsible thing to do is to take a pause.
No one knows what the future holds for small, 100% independent arts spaces. These are uncharted waters. But I know our odds of survival are much greater thanks to the amazing group of people who have made QED what it is. If you've ever seen a great show, taken a fun class, written a yelp review or even just stopped by to ask "What IS this place?", I want to THANK YOU. It is your enthusiasm that gives me faith that QED will get through this.
QED's monthly expenses are no joke, and that's without addressing the challenges facing our wonderful staff. I plan to continue making payroll for as long as possible, but that won't make up for tip money our bartenders will be losing. My insurance company has said they will not cover any of this, even if the government mandates ALL businesses close. (I posted their exact words on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/kambri/status/1238481201553383425?s=20)
I am hopeful that QED will qualify for a small business employee retention grant (we're not a non-profit) and, of course, for some economic stimulus that might come in the months or weeks after. But in the short term we're already in a bind, as events have been cancelled and refund after refund has been issued.
In short, QED could use your support. If this magical little place has meant something to you over the past 5+ years, a small donation is the best and easiest way to ensure that we come out the other side. Every little bit helps!
Thank you for being a part of my dream. Take care of yourself and the ones you love. See you soon.
