If there are any actors who feel that way, they probably don’t want to be known for feeling that way. After the swift and appropriate judgements against those who have been, even tangentially, anti-mask (I’m looking at you Osnes and Kimball), who’d want to go on record?

Every show has had to cancel performances or go with understudies since reopening. If we want to return to anything close to normalcy, it makes sense we do all we can to have that happen. Each actor and creative (behind the scenes, techs, musicians) all have seen colleagues get sick — and at least in one case, die. I just can’t see too many actors feeling relieved that the mandate has been lifted.

Kimball still confounds me — he was hospitalized with COVID and still went on to gripe about having to sing with a mask on.

That said, Ramin posted an “about time” message on his IG stories yesterday. So there’s at least one who feels that way. Good thing he’s pretty, because…. he also recently had COVID.

It’s just stupid. This really should have united us. Instead, it was politicized and exploited for profit and division. The real pandemic is ignorance.

Man, didn’t that sound judgey?
