The fall out: Reimagining theater after COVID-19.
Long Wharf will soon leave the building it has called home for 57 years. They’re adopting a new vision they call “an itinerant production model.” The arts had to get very creative to survive the shutdown due to the pandemic. Now that COVID-19 restrictions are easing up all over our region, can the arts bounce back to their pre-pandemic structure or will they have to reimagine themselves like the Long Wharf Theater?
