Art Station (Photographed July 18, 2020)
When I first entered Art Station in Stone Mountain, Artistic Director David Thomas was on a zoom call with the Emory Nursing Program talking through a myriad of details about how to safely open their theater, hopefully in the fall. I was very impressed with how well both he and Emory had thought through the minutia required to ensure that patrons, performers, stage hands and craftspeople remained safe from the still raging pandemic.
It is energy like I felt that Saturday morning and energy I have felt in theaters throughout Metro Atlanta that gives me hope that although it is going to difficult, theater will survive and thrive when we come out of this disaster.
