Creating live theater in the time of COVID-19 has proved challenging, but playwright James Nevius has written a story designed both to take place on Zoom (at an online high school reunion) as well as to be performed on Zoom.
No ― only the actors will appear on your Zoom screen. If you provide your cell number when you buy a ticket (we promise not to share it with anyone else), you can be a part of the show via text. The audience will help determine whodunit through voting for the killer at the end of the play.
That depends on your family.
In all seriousness, while there's no nudity and the violence is kept to a minimum, a number of cast members swear like sailors ― and drink like them, too ― so we thought you might want to know in advance.
Yes ― the show is performed in real time just as if you were in a brick-and-mortar theater. Please show up a few minutes early and get comfortable. The show will not be available after the performance.
While you have to log in to Zoom via a computer or tablet, you can broadcast (or "cast") the Zoom performance to a TV screen or monitor. For tips and tricks on how to do this, see this helpful guide: https://www.pocket-lint.com/apps/news/151726-how-to-get-zoom-on-your-tv
While you can download the Zoom app to your phone, you won't get the full experience. Sometimes as many as 9 actors appear on screen at a time. This can be accommodated on computer and tablet screens, but doesn't work correctly on phones.
So, while you can watch on a phone in a pinch, it's not recommended.
There are many things that can make Zoom calls seem choppy or have poor quality audio.
The show is being directed by quadruple-threat actor/writer/director/musician and Second City alum Mark Beltzman and produced by Beltzman along with the author James Nevius and his wife Michelle (who is also in charge of tickets, which is why your credit card will show a charge from 'Michelle Nevius').
We are also partnering with ProArts Playhouse, which will receive a portion of the proceeds.
