NEW YORK (AP) — The coronavirus silenced Broadway. It could not silence two of its rising stars. Samantha Pauly and Brittney Mack, who play two wives of Henry VIII in the musical “Six,” have turned their disappointment at having their musical on hold by doing what they do best — sing. Each day, Pauly and Mack make Instagram videos of themselves singing favorite songs. That’s just one way theater folk have passed the time since Broadway went dark. Playwrights like Lauren Gunderson and Young Jean Lee are offering online tutorials, performers are doing telethons and benefits from their living rooms and choreographers are breaking down dances online.
