these two words have been on repeat this week . . . "event canceled."
i went into this week thinking it would be a pretty calm one, but boy was i wrong! the world's mass hysteria revolving around this stupid coronavirus impacted every one of our (many) jobs. the theatres where ryan and i work had many shows canceled. the resort where ryan works had numerous events canceled. the university where i teach extended spring break and canceled classes.
this whole week was consumed with canceling shows, postponing events, and reworking class schedules / course calendars. it has been exhausting to say the least. this craziness is impacting the entertainment industry hard. there are so many of us who work in live entertainment, and we don't get paid if our events are canceled.
i'm hoping this all blows over soon and i hope the world just calms the heck down!
