Stamford theater group to perform in front of live audience for 1st time in months
A group dedicated to sharing a love of the arts is beginning to perform in front of an audience for the first time in months.
Organizers at Curtain Call say they spray-painted boxes on the grass so people can social distance as they watch performances from outside the Sterling Farms Theater Complex in Stamford.
Artistic director Lou Ursone says there's no script on how to deal with a pandemic.
"I've been here 20 years and I'm used to having at least three shows in the hopper at one time," he says.
Curtain Call wants to be a beacon for other areas on how to open safely.
"Hopefully we can start a trend at least we're hoping we might be out here until the early fall, doing some other concerts, maybe some other stage readings," says Ursone.
Shakespeare and Song runs all of this weekend as well as all of next weekend. Curtain Call says it's hoping to continue the concerts through early fall.
Reservations can be made through Curtain Call's website.
