NEW YORK (AP) — During the pandemic, the entertainment world has trudged on, by streaming, zooming and improvising.

But its in-person soul was nearly snuffed out, and with it a lifeblood of human connection.

The pandemic has upended entertainment industries, driving thousands out of work, reshaping time-tested institutions and accelerating digital transformations.

For the arts, a year of isolation and social distancing goes against nature.

Yet despite gathering being nearly impossible in 2020, many found ways to connect nevertheless — even if applause is virtual and muted, and standing ovations are car honks at the drive-in.

The show isn’t the same, but it goes on.
