Well, there is “A Killer Party,” which is a musical made in the time of COVID. Broadway performers (include some bigger names like Laura Osnes) played their roles from home and it’s edited together in a zoom meeting format.I’m quite disappointed. Way less about COVID but the lack of creative thinking and solutions.
Through hardship comes innovation. This is the opportunity for film studios to innovate, theatres to innovate, Broadway to innovate.
where are the ingenues creating the evolution of these institutions?
And they made “Love in the Time of Corona,” a more traditional show that was filmed with remote cameras to eliminate production crew size.
There are two main hurdles to innovation though. The first is time. Any sort of new production can take a year or two before it actually sees the light of day. New musicals typically take several years before they’re good enough for Broadway. The innovative that has occurred has had fun results, but not necessarily quality results. That’s why you’re not really hearing about them.
The second issue relates to unions. A lot productions are contractually required to operate with union workers and the then specific ways. Adjusting to that will take a while.
Gotcha.I was referring to Disneyland
