I walked past the TKTS booth in Times Square Wednesday, and thought "We'd have to socially distance just waiting in these lines." It sent a shudder, realizing that actual indoor attendance still seems far away. In a nation trepidatiously awaiting to vote in school gyms and cafeterias, packing 1500 into a tight space still feels frightening. The vaccine promise dangled daily seems to suggest the need for polio or measles level societal coverage, not merely seasonal flu inoculation. Likely with at least yearly updates. I'm old enough to recall waiting in line in a school parking lot to get my polio cube in 7th grade; the idea of refusing the vaccine was alien, which is far from true today. We are ever embroiled in a cultural debate over the very thing that will make it feel safe to assemble. The conversation about resumption of indoor performances is complex indeed.
