As many as 1,500 buildings, iconic structures, and residences will light up in red on the evening of Tuesday, September 1, from 9pm-12am, local time, as the event rolls across the country. This call to action was created by We Make Events North America, a coalition of live events professionals formed to urge Congress to pass the RESTART Act to help small businesses, and to extend and expand PUA for 1099 workers, and extend the $600 FPUC benefits for displaced workers.
As the buildings light up across the country, the thousands of people following this event on social media—4,000 followers and 625,000 people reached— are invited to watch RED ALERT LIVE, which will stream live from 9pm-1am Eastern time on Facebook and on YouTube.
RED ALERT LIVE will not only show the buildings lit in red in over 60 cities coast-to-coast, but also include video footage, live interviews with regional directors and their special guests. The stream will begin in New York City and conclude in Los Angeles, two epicenters of live events that have been crippled by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Shout-out to ushers!
Tony-winning director/choreographer Casey Nicholaw, first in the new eight-part [Playbill] video series Measured in Love. ... [S]treaming every Tuesday, the series will feature a different theatremaker each week, talking not just about their love of the industry but also about how everyone involved with a show relies on one another, eliciting a magical alchemy that results in a Broadway show.
At 6:52 pm, Nicholaw pointedly includes ushers as part of the theater-making experience. Respect!
