Theater and live music are back in Philly, with COVID safety precautions. KYW reporter John McDevitt gives us a peek at the first two events that happened on the Avenue of the Arts: Minor Character at the Wilma Theater and the Philadelphia Orchestra's return to the Kimmel Center featuring Yo-Yo Ma. We also bring in our Digital Managing Editor, Kristina "Luca" Koppeser, to chat about our own experiences going back to live events in a pandemic - both as audience members and on stage. And in today's headlines: Pennsylvania Attorney General Shapiro plans to run for governor, Philadelphia officials rally to get out the vote for an off-year election, the Wells Fargo Center tries to eliminate "knucklehead" behavior, and a community group in Burlington County, NJ opens up "brave conversations" about race.
