Piercing Ken Thoughts: We are so happy to see the Broadway lights back on here at the Media Command HQ but sadly several shows have gone dark or ended earlier because of the pandemic. “Diana The Musical” was closed in mid-December and that was followed by “Waitress”, “Trevor The Musical”, “Thoughts Of A Colored Man” and the shocker of “Jagged Little Pill” and “Ain’t Too Proud” (this last one drops the curtain this coming Saturday. With so many jobs being at stake I don’t mind seeing the continuation of vaccination proof and needing to wear a mask. In addition to all these wonderful blogs you enjoy I do some work in Covid Safety and I think these are all necessary measures to keep everything moving along and the people protected. If you don’t mind complying with these mandates I encourage you to head on our to an amazing show. There are some awesome ones running at the moment. That’s all I have to add to this, so see you again soon and please stay safe out there.
