True. But theater really is becoming well-nigh impossible.

It really does suck, and under the circumstances it’s sort of surprising that the theater business in general is doing as well as it is.

Personally there are 5 productions that I’ve had rescheduled a total of 19 times – 3 of which (after multiple cancellations) I will have never gotten to see. First-world problems for sure, but for context that’s about a total of about three weeks’ worth of evenings I’ve had on hold for just those five specific shows. (And, not to sound even more entitled since I realize this doesn’t amount to a hill of beans, but even having had to track all the multiple refunds has been more inconvenient and time-consuming than all the lines for vaccine checks put together.)

So it’s not taking anything away from the other half dozen things I actually have managed to easily see and enjoy this season when I say that it’s getting almost impossible to make theatergoing plans with any confidence.

Obviously safety is paramount… but barring some new horrible vaccine-evading variant, I feel like isn’t it time for the guidelines to probably change soon? (Major League Baseball dropped mandatory regular testing 3 months ago, and as a result only 1 game has been called off this season, as opposed to double-digits last year). I’ll always wish for everyone’s health, but if nothing changes and this kind of uncertainty persists, most likely I’ll regretfully see even less next season than this. Which I wouldn’t have thought possible even a few months ago.
