We got out. Thank goodness.
After spending the better part of two years watching choppy livestreams of plays and concerts at home, we dusted off our best clothes and congregated in person. Not that it was all smooth sailing: As in 2021, performances were scrapped at the last minute as artists and venue staff called in sick. But whereas the preceding years may have seen things grind to a halt altogether, in 2022 we pushed ahead — often without consensus, and often seemingly making the rules up as we went.
