The pandemic has taken away a key element for performing artists — a live audience. Many artists and performers have moved their shows online since the start of the pandemic. Now, some are starting to think about what returning to in-person shows will be like. We talk with Shelley McLendon, comedian and owner of The Siren Theater and Bad Reputation Productions, about her ambitions to return to the stage. We’re also joined by Anjali Hursh and Stephen Strausbaugh of DJ Anjali and the Incredible Kid, who moved their dance parties online during the pandemic.
