World Theatre Day: Tribute to Singapore shows affected by COVID-19

By ArtsEquator

From 26 March 2020, 2359 hrs, all theatres in Singapore will go dark in response to COVID-19 measures. We pay tribute to the shows that have been cancelled or postponed in Singapore, through photos – looking at the work that has gone on for the past few months (for some, years), from photo shoots to behind-the-scenes prep and meetings, table reads, rehearsals and previews.
