We see wronged women in documentaries, movies and the news. Silly lady, she was just ticked off one too many times and blew like Vesuvius. These women are not people, only lesser facsimiles of more complicated male villains. They are either seen as absurd or clichéd tropes in most films and TV. Or are they?
How do you translate the energy and feeling of a live show — the crowd singing along, watching the lines around a concert venue with excitement — into a virtual production with an audience stuck at home?
