Dallas actors share how the pandemic affected their jobs in live theatre [Video]

Allison Pistorius and her husband Chris Hury share how the pandemic affected their jobs in the live theatre industry at their home in Garland, Texas, in Dallas on Monday, July 19, 2021. Pistorius and Hury, two of Dallas’ most gifted actors, had their world turned upside down by the pandemic. Hury was unemployed for months after March 2020. Pistorius has worked as a teacher at SMU, but much of that was done virtually. Hury recently got a job teaching in Terrell, Texas, so he is now moving away from live theater. (Lynda M.
