Theatre people pre-date the gig economy.  Itinerant performers entertained villages centuries before the first theatre building was constructed.  And Shakespeare's Globe Theatre often had to lay off the whole company because of epidemics of plague.  Now, in the Washington, DC area, ninety theatre companies have had to cease operations because of covid-19.  Many of those who work in them as actors, designers, lighting, sound, and costume staff, directors, and box office personnel do not have benefits such as sick leave and health insurancea?'they just get paid show to show.  Fifty productions had to be cancelled and twenty more, which were about to open, never will.
