A photo links four fates

Last week I wrote briefly about the photo above. As I’ve been doing a lot of reflecting on things lately, this seems like the perfect time to go into the story of that photo. I had written previously about a photo I took at the first show of our first season. That blog can be Read More

The story of a moment in time

A look at our past that will be spoken about in the future.  We here at Live History thought it would be fun to give another teaser of next week’s blog and see if you can guess what is happening.  Last week, we spoke about a photo taken from our first show in our first Read More

A picture is worth 1000 words

We’ve all heard the phrase a picture is worth a 1000 words, and that every picture tells a story. As time goes on, the people who know the story fade away, and the story is sometimes lost. How different is the real story from our best guess? We are starting a new series this week, Read More

Raise a glass to the past!

But what will I wear?

One of the most common questions we get as part of the Live History team is “What about costumes?”. With a regular roster of almost 20 actors that are very different from each other, and theatrical seasons that cover anywhere from the late 1200s to the late 1900s (and counting), it can be a little Read More

Historical Zoom Meetings

As the world changes, Live History has had to adapt, as many other companies have done. Before all of this, email seemed to be the top of our technical skills. When the pandemic hit, we knew that we had to learn a lot. Don’t get me wrong, we could churn butter or use an abacus Read More
