That's no surprise. For those of us who treasure live theatre for its uniqueness, streamed performances are both unsatisfying and unhealthy. And for those who both treasure live performance and make a living from it, it's no surprise that the crisis solution that became temporarily popular is waning. Streamed live performances are a compromise and compromises are by definition mediocre. Better access means more accessible live theatre, not streaming. We don't have to compromise in filmmaking either: it's always better when it is not trying to fit a square peg in a round hole (or maybe more aptly, v/v).
