I love movies in the theater. The dark space, the wide screen, and the community experience all captivate me. However, I can’t deny the intensity and awe I feel at a live theater performance.

The music begins boldly and my eyes are anxious for what’s to come. The curtains open with style, the actors waiting patiently. They have already transformed. These characters guide us through the story, but we are not just listening. They are standing right there; I can see the swear on their faces and feel the vibration of their vibrato. They can hear my laughter and feel inspired from my cheers of support. We are living this story together in this tiny theater on the streets of a big city. For brief afternoon, we connect as one human spirit in suspense, drama, and enjoyment.
