There’s a power in the exchange of energy that takes place during live theater that you can’t get while watching a movie or TV. That power has the ability to transform people, even if for just that brief moment of time while sitting in the theater. I love standing at the back of the house and watching patrons be absorbed into the moment. And then there are those shows/performances that shift your life permanently. You never forget them. You have a new perspective or you open up to something hidden within that needs to be released. It’s a special experience which stems from that exchange between audience and actor. Theater is transformative and builds relationships, with ourselves and with others.
