Theater in Seattle: The future of the industry and how it will (and needs to) change
For audience members, the closure of Seattle's theaters because of COVID-19 is an inconvenience. For actors, directors, stage crew and more, the uncertainty of the future of live performances is even more troublesome. In recent weeks, many companies have announced they have been forced to make staff reductions and postpone shows. When the theaters do reopen, chances are great the experiences will look and feel much different, which, as it turns out, could be a really good thing.
