Actors from Portland’s PassinArt production of “Seven Guitars.” The dramatic play about African American life in the 20th Century was cancelled Monday just as it was scheduled to begin because of concerns over the coronavirus epidemic.

Passinart, the theater group grounded to Portland’s African American community, announced Monday the cancelation of its latest production “Seven Guitars.” The dramatic play by August Wilson was scheduled to begin a one month run this week at the Interstate Firehouse Cultural Center in north Portland.

Passinart said they made the decision to cancel the production to ensure the safety and health of the public, artists, staff and volunteers in light of recommendations by public health officials to limit group events to fight the spread of the coronavirus epidemic.
