The Conversation: Let's Hear That Live Applause Again

Hank Gonzalez/Waikiki Shell

Musicians are slowly returning for physically distanced concerts and actors are returning to the stage hungry for the connection with real people in the house.

The Conversation was joined by Director of the City and County of Honolulu’s Department of Enterprise Services Jerry Pupillo, President of IATSE Local 665 Tui Scanlan, and President and CEO of the Hawai'i Events Coalition Bob Harmon to examine the future of live performances in our islands.

They also discussed how live events were saved last year and the role vaccinations play in scheduling live performances.
