I am not advocating for anything in particular but:
1. There is an evolving sense that case counts are not very meaningful because of the flat morbidity data.
2. There is an evolving sense that properly wearing a mask provides adequate protection for vaccinated people.
3. The relentless testing of actors is yielding absences that are predicated on exposure that does not translate to anything else.
4. An approach that is more akin to the flu seems like a place we will eventually evolve to instead of the auto-absences of many people without symptoms.
5. While there is indeed a new normal, and their are market variations, there are a lot of people going to the theatre, just as they are flying, going to sporting events and concerts, eating out, going to parties and clubs, etc etc. Broadway will adjust to the demand, likely by a more reasonable supply, something that some/many of us have been saying is all along.
