Popejoy Hall at the University of New Mexico is the latest to cancel upcoming shows due to the precautions regarding coronavirus.

Thursday night was set to be opening night for “Escape to Margaritaville,” but the six-performance run was postponed on Thursday morning. No rescheduled date is known.

In a statement, Popejoy officials said, “Due to the Governor’s declaration of a state of emergency and the Secretary of Health’s public health order, the University of New Mexico has made the difficult decision to cancel all events through April 30.”

The affected events in addition to “Escape to Margaritaville” include:

“The Tap Pack” on March 20;

“Broadway Princess Party” on March 22;

“Bollywood Boulevard” on March 27;

“Killer Queen” on March 28; and

“Drum Tao” on April 3.

Further details for patrons and the general public will be forthcoming, Popejoy officials said.

Santa Fe’s Meow Wolf also announced that it will close the House of the Eternal Return beginning Friday through March 31.

Meow Wolf also noted business offices will not be closing at this time and will be providing work for employees affected by the temporary closing of the House of Eternal Return.

To accommodate changes in travel plans, Meow Wolf will be offering ticket exchanges for a full year or a refund,” the release stated.

Those affected can email help@meowwolf.com to begin this process.

Meow Wolf also announced they would be cancelling events and concerts until April 15 and will offer 100% refunds. Those interested in refunds can email events@meowwolf.com to begin the process.

Tricklock’s Revolutions International Theatre Festival is also postponing the last two weeks of its festival.

Juli Hendren, festival director, said the festival was faced with international concerns and cancellations due to the virus, prior to its beginning.

“The most recent situation that has come up is a required two-week quarantine for some countries on returning from the Unites States,” Hendren said in a statement. “As artists, we live through our art. If we can’t perform, teach, work arts events, etc., we don’t get paid. The quarantine would cause a huge financial crisis on them.”

Hendren hopes to present the groups that were slated to perform at Revolutions later in the year.

“We will see how things shake out; perhaps we try for a smaller Revolutions in the fall,” she said. “Of course, we will honor your tickets at that time.”
