This blog captures my thoughts on the theatre experience so well--so much more so when we think about Shakespeare's way of doing theatre--lights on--audience there--life happening before you, with you.
Note especially audience interaction, but argue with schools/education who think it is easily dismissed. The sciences NEED/CRAVE creativity. Creative people. Everyone who reads and experiences Shakespeare will not move onto performing Shakespeare. They will move on to identifying with humanity, creative problem solving--one thing this blog leaves out is this amazing skill those who create it possess--not to mention: a love of life and all of the things that make it spring. Read it. Tell us what you think!
