Like others have said... there's nothing to report. What exactly can these theatres do differently when they re-open? Most shows can't survive on 50% occupancy so Broadway isn't going to come back until it can fully come back business as usual and that's not going to be until after the new year unfortunately.
I think it's fine to go ahead with what you have in a professional production where the the pool of people you have doesn't allow you to have full true to the piece diversity. Just don't do black face. Which in Japan at least has been an issue... in 2015 they did a production of Memphis with one black actor and all the other Black roles were done with black face.
Relive the entire journey with Matt & Joel as they recount the reality show of our time. Yes... They too do not care for Emma Zaks... And they know that Lena Hall is among the contestents but they don't know which it is and will not accept spoilers...

Bootlegs during Quarantine Apr 5
2020, 01:15:56 AM
Hey, that's great but a lot of shows die on the vine and are never heard from again despite how good they might be. Bootlegs help to fill that gap in a way. Do you think Carrie ever would have had the continued cult status it did if the bootlegs didn't exist? And in the last decade with the rework brought about from that cult status it's become a regional staple.
It's not about entitlement, it's about reality. A lot of shows can barely afford making their week to week so people pick up
Because in many cases they're the only preservation of productions/performances that get lost to time. You've often seen bootleg footage used in documentaries and we've all heard Ethel Merman's final performance in Gypsy. They're time capsules. If producers were more willing to invest in recording shows I'd be more apt to listen to their concerns, until then dun give a ****. If people can do it d
>If you know these will come anyway, why don't you take a stack of Playbills, ask for the cast to go signing at their leisure and then you will have them ready to go by the time the envelopes come, instead of going around everyone everytime a request come throug (even though you, the actors or the production own these people nothing)
That's actually how it USED to be done. No clue anymore. But around 2006 it was often a feature in Broadway.com BTS videos of act
You seem to be missing the point of The Tonys not happening. It's not only that shows can't open nor be seen, it's because it's a huge gathering of people. Unless the gathering restrictions are dramatically loosened in the next few weeks The Tonys will not be anything.
>but I mean you can be on the transit for a VERY long period of time in a VERY crowded car. You can be at a very small packed bar. At a packed club. Seeing Drag Race on a Friday night. There’s not really anyway to “contain” it. So just be safe and cautious.
Sick person is at Broadway show as an Usher, exchanges tickets with literally hundreds of people a night. The rate of spread there is a lot less in a smaller group of people. Yes you could say that "Well pe
>What I don’t get it is we all take the subway, LIRR, buses, go eat at restaurants, go to the gym. We are constantly interacting with people. Why does Broadway make any difference? Wash your hands. Be clean. Be respectful. Sanitize. It shouldn’t take an outbreak to convince people to wash their hands.
Because those first three are necessities not a hobby. The latter are not groups of literally hundreds of people locked in one spot for hours at a time. Sh
>If it interferes with back-stage communication or something, then adapt a special frequency for back-stage communication.
It's not that simple... You can't just block specific frequencies. If you're in a building it's going to block everything unless you've got some military grade tech running things. There's a story about Phantom one time picking up a signal from outside the theatre one time that caused the boat to have a mind of its own.
