The Big Comeback: The Choir of Man at Playhouse Square

This film examines the business, personal, and artistic challenges faced and overcome by the performing arts community due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In June 2021, Playhouse Square welcomed audiences to the first live performance on its stages in 15 months. After the cancellation of 1,100 performances, the performing arts center triumphantly reopened with The Choir of Man, the first international tour to perform in the United States since the start of the pandemic.
