We are thrilled that Scenesaver made Mike Fischer’s top five “Champion Streamers” for flying the flag for digital theatre, particularly during the Covid-19 lockdowns of 2020-2021. His article on Forward Theatre Co’s website makes the point:
theater fans unable to attend live performances because of age and/or impairment shouldn’t be denied the opportunity to see such performances. Theater companies, playwrights, and unions failing to take these constituencies into account during the years ahead will not just be remembered as woefully shortsighted. They will also be roundly criticized – and should be – for failing to make theater as accessible as possible, to as many people as possible. It’s not complicated: Either we truly care about being inclusive or we don’t.
We wholeheartedly agree!
