Since launching our Together Apart series on April 15th, we’ve undergone a massive shift in how we present theatre, streaming productions from our past and hosting conversations with artists in our community.
Our audiences have been nothing but supportive of this new series and we’ve been thrilled with the response. Thank you! Here’s a collection of initial feedback, reviews, comments, and more!
“Nothing quite compares to live theater, but the commitment of local theater companies to making their work accessible to viewers at home is admirable, especially during a time that’s economically devastating for many small arts organizations.” -Celina Colby, Bay State Banner
“ArtsEmerson lists a shocking succession of ‘CANCELLED’ events previously scheduled, but boldly leads with ‘Together Apart – Explore New Worlds From Your Home.’ Which brings us to the tricky subject of moving theater into the realm of the small screen, online streaming, Zoom, and YouTube.” – Jeff Zinn, The Arts Fuse
“These online conversations have been really helpful to us — the demonstration of leadership is generally missing from our experience of this time. You’re giving us comfort and inspiration with these conversations.” – Lisa Hodson
“What a remarkable line-up you’ve got scheduled! Can’t wait to tune in!!!” – @MegTaintor
“This ArtsEmerson show was AWESOME! A great watch for one and all.” – @tnessLX
“New normal, tonight streaming @The7Fingers’s Sequence 8 performance, courtesy of ArtsEmerson. Saw this show in 2012.” – @y2000k
“Thanks to ArtsEmerson and @huntington for the collaboration to make this happen. This is a beautiful play that deserves to be seen.” – @tinacassidy2
“Even in today’s environment, Boston’s arts community is working hard to make art accessible. @wgbh is proud to partner with @huntington and @ArtsEmerson.” – @abbottjonathanc
