While there were many ‘favorite’ moments – I was personally touched by @ComedieFR (Comédie Française) in France who tweeted to discuss the recent events and illustrate how important it is to keep enjoying theatre and why/how the show must go on. Thank you.

There were also many touching moments when theatres were talking to each other – many from different countries.

The use of periscope grew a lot this year also. I managed to catch a few and it made me feel like I was there (and not in a flat in Vienna).
