Jill Edmund Virtual Theatre - Founded by Laurie Glodowski and Jean-Paul Yovanoff, the Jill Edmund VT was created as a way to not only keep theatre alive during the pandemic but to keep as much of the live theatrical experience as possible. Enjoy moving from table to virtual table, talking to friends and meeting new people in a lobby like atmosphire. Then the lights go down and the curtain goes up and there is the virtual stage where actors can make their entrences and exits as needed. Or sit back and watch a video of a pre recorded performance. And when the show is done, back to the lobby where you can meet the actors or hang out with your friends, just like in real life. Contact email@example.com for more information.
