HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

From the Godspeed Opera House to the Shubert Theater to Hartford Stage, theaters across Connecticut and the country are participating in the Ghostlight Project.

Organizers call it a “national expression of unity, diversity and inclusion,” as President-elect Donald Trump is about to take office on Friday.

Theaters in all 50 states are inviting the public to bring a light to the theater where there is live music, inspirational readings and other events.

"It's kind of a recommitment of theaters as a safe and inclusive space for all American citizens to come and gather and reflect and think and dream,” said Rachel Alderman, of Hartford Stage.
