1. The lights may be out on Broadway, and theatres everywhere, but that doesn't stop the creative minds of those who have found themselves with lots of time on their hands. Voice actor and comedian Ricky Downes III was so inspired with Disney+ Hamilton Live that he has recorded all of Act I of Hamilton... in the voices of all The Muppets.

The pandemic has had a devastating impact on the world of theatre. Many wonder if live theatre can even survive, as productions everywhere have been postponed or cancelled.

Theatres are trying to salvage the arts by putting their plays on film so they can still be enjoyed. The only problem with this, is that theatre online is not really theatre at all.

Even when theatres reopen, will patrons feel comfortable sitting in such close quarters to strangers for over two hours. When theatres do resume performances, would you feel comfortable going?
