AC vs DC: Power in the Home

AC/DC is more than just a band! Here's it explained in simple to understand terms.
Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

Why oh why can’t people understand the notion of wearing their damn masks? Its not an impact on your freedoms, its not a big political ideology, but it most assuredly will help contain the spread of this worldwide pandemic.

Because these idiots cannot help themselves or those around them by doing the bare minimum of staying home and wearing a damn mask, one of the biggest tourism draws in the United States other than the Disney parks (who, GASP, aren’t opening yet due to concerns of the infection rate rising amid raising of state-mandated protection measures) is making the decision to NOT re-open in 2020.

According to The Broadway League, the rest of the 2020 Broadway season is officially canceled. The League will offer ticket refunds and exchanges for shows scheduled through January 3rd, 2021.

Chairman of the Board of The Broadway League Thomas Schumacher said:


“The Broadway experience can be deeply personal but it is also, crucially, communal. The alchemy of 1000 strangers bonding into a single audience fueling each performer on stage and behind the scenes will be possible again when Broadway theatres can safely host full houses.  Every single member of our community is eager to get back to work sharing stories that inspire our audience through the transformative power of a shared live experience.  The safety of our cast, crew, orchestra and audience is our highest priority and we look forward to returning to our stages only when it’s safe to do so. One thing is for sure, when we return we will be stronger and more needed than ever.”

President of the Broadway League Charlotte St. Martin said:


“Our membership is working closely with the theatrical unions and in concert with key experts and some of the greatest minds inside and outside of the industry to explore protocols for all aspects of reopening. We are focused on identifying and implementing necessary measures that will enable us to resume performances safely for Broadway audiences and employees. We are determined to bring back the people who rely on this industry for their livelihood, and to welcome back all those who love this vital part of New York City, as soon as it is safe to do so.  As so many of us in the Broadway community have been saying during this time – We’ll be back, and we have so many more stories to tell.”
