NEW YORK (AP) — Group reunions on Zoom have rarely been the fuel for good art.

But one has created a musical, actually 10, to be precise. Grammy Award-winner Lisa Loeb was inspired to capture the weirdness, wonder and horror of 2020 during a Brown University online reunion. She tapped dozens of her fellow alumni to create “Together Apart,” a collection of 10 mini-musicals that capture a year online.

There are stories about speed-dating during the pandemic, elementary school taught through Zoom, a pair of divorcees forced to become roommates, moms struggling through quarantine and a family game night that spins out of control.

Loeb is best known for her 1994 Billboard number one song “Stay (I Missed You)” from the soundtrack of the movie Reality Bites.
