Abstract

The outbreak of coronavirus is heralded with the dawn of strange situations around the world. In 2020, the world was in lockdown for months. The prohibition of social gathering affected live theatre and prompted measures that have been put in place by health experts to curtail the spread of the virus. The use of facemask, washing of hands and others are the protocols in place to stop the spread of the virus. The entertainment industry is one of the sectors that have been affected by this pandemic. Live theatre performance in Nigeria is one of the areas of the entertainment industry that has reinvented itself amidst the pandemic. The idea of drive-in theatre is an ongoing experiment in Nigeria that seems to be at the forefront of readapting live theatre. This paper evaluates Mosaic Theatre Production's (MTP) execution of first ever drive-in theatre in Nigeria.
