Yesterday I read that there were 62 new cases reported from just one theatre company in Japan during the rehearsal period and the production was shut down. They were wearing masks and face shields during the rehearsal and still got infected because they were in a crowded space without sufficient ventilation I assume. I'd like to know how 29 people avoided getting infection (or maybe they will get positive results later??).
For Japanese Billy Elliot, I heard a lot of rehearsal was done remotely, but they did group rehearsal too. BTW the intermission was for 25 min and it was enough for the bathroom break.
