Governor DeWine recently announced reopening guidelines for performing arts theaters in Ohio. Venues like the Performing Arts Center at Kent State at Tuscarawas (PAC) fall under this category, and we cannot wait to welcome everyone back safely to share another live experience. However, the capacity restrictions and social distancing requirements for reopening present a severe economic challenge and even in the arts, it all comes down to the numbers.
