BWW Feature: Isolation Creation Continues As Entertainment Community Shares Itself Via Remote
The return of The Rosie O'Donnell Show was something to cheer for. For over three hours, Ms. O'Donnell used the miracle of online chatting and live streaming to bring all of her friends from Broadway and beyond into the homes of fans who are housebound (and stir crazy) from the COVID-19 self-quarantine. In the process, Ms. O'Donnell raised more than $600,000 dollars for The Actors Fund. THIS is just one of the many ways in which the performing arts community is helping to raise spirits, raise money, and raise awareness during this difficult time. Many artists have been self-filming at home and sending their creations online through Facebook, Youtube, and through the treasured Manhattan-based website Sandi Durell'S THEATER PIZZAZZ. Check out some of the videos created by some of the industry's most gifted and respected performing artists.
THE SKIVVIES' Lauren Molina has really been at work, creating A Quarantine Singalong HERE, a Sondheim Birthday greeting HERE, a social distance anthem created with her Skivvies partner, Nick Cearley HERE, and Nick and his puppy made THIS video version of a Bette Midler tune... slightly updated
Ann Kittredge shared this video of her Mother/Daughter DUET on this gorgeous song that everyone loves. This is Tedy Hofmann and Ann Kittredge and it's sheer perfection
