During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, producing live theatre was put on an indefinite hold, and the theatre world had to turn to other means of production including virtual performances, much like the production of I and You by Lauren Gunderson that was produced as a part of the Studio 115 Spring 2021 season and was directed by Sarah Hogestyn. This project is an extensive virtual documentation of the directing process, the rehearsal process, and the shift from producing theatre live to producing it virtually. Follow along with every step of the process from the standpoint of the director in this new world of distanced theatre.
