Pop Ups or Pop Tarts

We are left to wonder: Pop Ups or Pop Tarts? Governor Cuomo’s latest brainstorm is to sponsor Pop Up entertainment running from February 20 through Labor Day. He sees this as a bridge to returning to live entertainment. We say, Pop Tarts indeed. His proposal is sheer folly. Thousands of entertainers, actors, musicians are unemployed throughout New York State. That is largely due to his repressive edicts shutting down venues. This is more of the same. The Governor is once again attempting to deflect criticism against suffering that is of his own creation. The talented and diverse entertainers make up the cultural fabric of New York. Their careers and livelihood are imperiled because of his restrictions. Open the closed venues and let the arts thrive. We call upon King Andrew to do the right thing.
