Now here’s a very 2020 take on live theater.
Yesterday, East Dallas Arts presented a staging of Spring Awakening that may go down in history quite possibly the safest production ever. Not the material, however. Don’t worry, there’s still sexual discovery and teen angst aplenty in this version of the Tony Award-winning musical.
Not only does the audience stream the play from the comfort and safety of home, but the actors are each sequestered in their own individual plexiglass boxes throughout the show.
Starting today, you can purchase a streaming pass to Thursday night’s production to watch whenever you want to through October 17.
This may be the future of live theater for a while, so check it out and see what you think. Watching from your own plexiglass box, of course, is entirely optional.
