PANDEMIC THEATRE IN 2020
NEXT TO NORMAL
ETC’s inaugural production was anything but normal. In August 2020, ETC mounted a fully produced, professional production of the musical Next to Normal–outdoors, in a backyard, for a socially distanced audience. It was exhilarating, life affirming, and a total reflection of the unique times in which we’re living.
