Streamed Content to Prevent COVID-19 Brain Drain: Your Mom Thinks I’m Cool

Dear Readers,

In another week, Massachusetts starts the first of four phases to reopen the state. That’s fun.

Keep washing your hands for 20 seconds. Wear a mask outside. Socially distance yourself. Donate to arts organizations. Stay three to six feet away. Be healthy.

Lastly, say hi to your mother for me.

All our love from six feet away,
Kitty, Queen of the New England Theatre Geeks
