Magic Theatre (Artistic Director Loretta Greco and Interim Managing Director Kevin Nelson) is now producing a new Monday-through-Friday daily podcast series, “Far Apart,” in response to the current COVID-19 crisis.
The series is composed of brief, daily audio journals from a host of Magic’s family of playwrights.
“In lieu of coming together physically as a community,” said Artistic Director Loretta Greco, “I thought we might put together a series of short, audio narratives to offer some connectivity, solidarity, and joy to our audiences in a kind of old school way, by leaning in and listening to what Magic’s playwrights are discovering about staying healthy and creative during this special period of sheltering in place. 21 of our writers generously offered to contribute to our Far Apart Art series. I hope their candid reflections help everyone to feel a little less alone until we can come together again. Enjoy.”
