By now you have heard from everyone, inlcuding the company that holds the warranty on the salad spinner you purchased 10 years ago. And you know what, that is a fantastic thing. I am so grateful for the awarenss and thoughtfulness of so many people. I love that I am getting messages from my auto loan company, my high school friends and neighbors down the street. The hastag #togetherapart is spot on.
While we all hunker down for the greater good and safety of all of us, we at TWN had a thought: What if we mounted a production number in a week(ish). “What?” You say. “That is crazy talk!” But maybe not, if we get a little creative, and creativity is our specialty.
Several seasons ago TWN produced Irving Berlin’s Annie Get Your Gun. The show opens with one of the most iconic musical theatre tunes ever composed, “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” and folks, isn’t that the truth.
Let’s remind ourselves just how creative and resilient we are, not only as show people, but has the people on this planet navigating this moment.
Thank you to all the creative people who submitted videos. We are so excited to premiere the final product soon!
Be Safe and Smart
