A reliable haven for lone performers, Theater Resources Unlimited (TRU) is now in its second year of non-stop weekly community gatherings this Friday, having offered nearly 100 conversations and unlimited camaraderie to date since April 17, 2020. TRU hosts their Community Gatherings every Friday at 5 p.m. ET via Zoom, to explore artistic and theatrical creation in the time of COVID-19. These crucial conversations will continue as the theater reopens. Ask questions, provide answers, be part of a community – it’s an opportunity to network with theater professionals and talk about surviving theater during the shutdown, and what we’re up to now, at the ‘to come up.
