Adapting Halftime

Philly sets the stage for entertainment acts and they deliver.

I’ve been so impressed with acts like Christian and Scooby who have shown a willingness and skill to adapt their acts during the pandemic.

Here in Philly they changed from performing at center court to the Sixers performance stage (temporarily built in the lower bowl stands) for their show.

While performing on a small stage is not new for Christian and Scooby, who perfected their show on smaller Vegas stages, but adjusting to being able to engage the theatre-in-the-round setting of a huge NBA venue while tucked on a make-shift stage is still new and different.

Also love that Philly was all on on bringing back top tier halftime acts for their playoff runs and making due in the fleeting days working under pandemic rules.
