There are a lot of things that I love in this world, but here are two of them that are relevant to today's topic of conversation: Theater, and creative solutions.
With a large portion of theaters around the world are still closed or under lots of restrictions due to the pandemic, some actors have turned to the internet and Fallout 76 for an answer to the problem. The Theater Company, a Fallout 76 acting troupe, has been holding performances in order to keep their acting skills sharp over the last year or so. So far, they've performed scenes from shows like Hamlet, A Clockwork Orange, Grease, Newsies, West Side Story, and many others.
Most recently, the troupe presented a 45 minute performance of Shakespeare's "The Scottish Play." One of the members recreated the Globe Theater inside of Fallout 76 and all of the actors moved their characters and spoke their lines via voice chat in order to perform the play. The full performance is showcased in the video above (which is about 45min long).
I absolutely love this. Some of the actors even played multiple roles - with costume changes! It's such a delightfully creative and fun solution to an ongoing problem. According to the article on PC Gamer, the actors are currently working on a rendition of The Nutcracker for the holiday season. Honestly, count me in!
