Last weekend, when I realized I wouldn’t be seeing a lot of my friends, acquaintances (or “virtually” anyone) in-person for quite some time, I started reaching out via FaceTime, Zoom and Text just to check-in and see how they were doing.
Well, they showed me.
In the first few moments of our chit-chat, they had me laughing, they had me learning (sharing their tips of how they were getting through this), and they had me inspired to do something to help anyone out there who need the same medicine that I inadvertently did!
That’s when I thought . . . more people need to hear from these amazing folks.
So that’s what we’re doing.
Inspired by my podcast and the little pick-me-ups I described above, tonight we start TheProducersPerspectiveLIVE!
Every night at 8 PM EDT, we’ll have a superstar TheaterMaker join us for a brief chat about how they are doing, what they are doing, and what tips they are for you on getting through, and eventually, getting back to what we all love to do . . . make theater.
And yes, that’s right . . . no recorded edited episodes here. These will be LIVE and ON VIDEO, streaming live on Facebook.
And just look at who has already shot their hand up and said YES, I’ll do it!
