Theater Talk: If it's happening, it's happening online

May 1, 2020

Last week Shakespeare in Delaware Park's first show was cancelled then Antoni Cimolino cancelled the entire Stratford (Shakespeare) Festival. Shawfest is rehearsing via Zoom and may have some shows later in the summer. The good news is that suddenly major Chita Rivera level stars are available to collaborate online, for example at Stephen Sondheim's 90th Birthday tribute ("The Ladies Who Lunch" from COMPANY begins at 1:58:34.)  The 12th annual August Wilson Monologue Competition National Finals will be held online May 2–3.

A good place to stay up-to-date is at Playbill.com as well as Broadway.com where "the back story" on Buffalo's Christine Baranski joining Meryl Streep and Audra McDonald for "The Ladies Who Lunch" can be seen here.
