Spider’s Web – Parker Players
The acting was quite fine and very nice set. And it’s always nice to see a friend (in this case Stephen Pickering) perform, and to see a show with Pete.
But I have to confess that the experience was not nearly as enjoyable for me as it could have been due to the off-stage experience. Unlike Chicago theatres, who seem to be uniformly requiring proof of vaccination and masking throughout the show, this company and venue required neither. Pete and I were a couple of the handful of people who actually wore masks. To make it even more stressful, the seating was totally smashed together in a way that could NO WAY be adhering to fire safety laws, let alone any Covid physical distancing. The audience situation being a nightmare made it really hard to enjoy the production.
