What does it take to bring a show back — or start a new one — after a near-total industry shutdown? How does it feel to be inside a theater again? And how are artists and audiences coping with the uncertainty of what lies ahead? To find out, join The New York Times for the final episode of “Offstage,” their digital series about theater making during the pandemic.

The episode will include a look into the Walter Kerr Theater during Hadestown rehearsals; conversations with André De Shields, Reeve Carney, Eva Noblezada, and other Hadestown company members; a conversation with Douglas Lyons, author of upcoming comedy Chicken & Biscuits; performances from Hadestown and Girl from the North Country; and audience members from some of the first reopened Broadway performances.

And after the episode ends, you’re invited to a live Zoom panel with Times culture journalists as they talk about what’s happened and what’s next for Broadway. “Offstage” host and the Times’s theater reporter, Michael Paulson, will be joined by the chief theater critic Jesse Green, the theater editor Nicole Herrington and Maya Phillips, a critic at large.

For New York Times subscribers only.
