Artistic director Josh Gladstone was quoted as saying: "We’re sorry not to have Laura on this, [and] we will look forward to working with Laura again."

But yes - only if she changes her mind about the shot. In other words, I feel his statement was rather boilerplate, because I tend to wonder if she would indeed ever decide to get vaccinated for the sake of future work there. Maybe she will eventually cave in to the pressure around her, but I don't think we can count on that. Also, that's not really the right reason to get the vaccine. One should get it because they feel it's an important thing to do for themselves and the community, not because it's shutting you out of work.

But I tend to think this is going to become a huge issue for any performer who is unwilling to get vaccinated. And, sad as that is in a number of ways (especially for their own lives and those around them, let alone the work), I completely support that. I'm not sure that I would be comfortable right now working with anyone not vaccinated, and I tend to assume that most artists will share that feeling. This is the world we're in right now, and decisions, like it or not, have consequences. It still completely galls me that we spent so much time hoping and praying for a vaccine, and now that we have not just one, but a number of them, there are way too many people who refuse to take it, especially with a political stance as part of that decision. I just don't get it at all. But hey, I guess that's just my opinion lol.

But please, let's leave the word "cancel" out of this. That term really needs to be, um, cancelled. :-)
