As local theatre learns to keep creating during the pandemic, Spotlight is trying new programming formats to keep performers and patrons safe. Artistic Director Kenny Grossman set the schedule for the first half of the season first, in order to learn the best approaches to take for the spring schedule.
“Our theme for the new season is ‘Create,'” Grossman says. “Artists create. Through theatre we hope to create joy, fun, peace, understanding, silliness, suspense, vision, and friendship with original works and even an old classic, performed safe and onstage.”
This season will be based on shows (mostly dramas and comedies) with very small casts, and fewer than usual performances, played to physically-distanced audiences. At the same time, these same shows will be available to much larger audiences than usual when presented as live-streaming events online.
