When everything started to shut down, live theatre was one industry that was hit the hardest. Broadway, for example, was officially closed on March 12th, 2020 –it’s scheduled to reopen on June 1st–but for over a year professional theaters, community theaters, and even school programs have had to adapt in order to survive and create. Digital theatre has emerged to fill the gap for artists and audiences, and a lot of progress has been made because of the industry’s willingness to adapt. Here to speak on how this has happened and what digital theatre has become over the past year is Michael Paulson, a Pulitzer-prize winning reporter and current theatre critic for the New York Times.
