In the past weeks following Boston’s stay-at-home orders, our local theatre community has been Zoom-ing (literally) around the question: how can we connect if we can’t gather at the theater?
We are experiencing, now more than ever before, a need for meaningful connection with other people online. Social media, once just a platform used to get out the word about shows, and still a relatively recent cultural development, is now one of the only ways we can get our dose of entertainment and ideas from Boston theatre’s greatest. But instead of this new norm being discouraging or limiting, local artists and arts administrators are blessing us with much-needed levity and heart.
