In Back to Methuselah George Bernard Shaw wrote “without art, the crudeness of reality would make the world unbearable.” During periods of uncertainty the arts can provide a respite from the world around us and give us a new perspective.
At a time that stages around the world have gone dark, organizations are providing opportunities to continue to enjoy the arts online. We’ve compiled a list of places to enjoy everything from Shakespeare and Broadway to operas and museum exhibits. We hope this brings a bit of the arts into your home and lifts your spirits.
Stay well and we’ll see you after our “intermission”.
