Today is World Theatre Day, which provides the perfect excuse to gush about one of my favorite things.
To paraphrase the Bard, all the world’s a stage, but the world on the stage is a lot more fun…and quite often, makes more sense.
The wonderful thing about theater is that it can be something different to everyone. It can be a place to think, and make sense of the world. It can be an escape, and a place where literally nothing makes sense.
It can put you in someone else’s shoes in a way that’s much more real and intimate than film. It can allow you to look at the world in a different way, which is something we could all use a little more of.
Whatever theater is to you, I hope you have a chance to enjoy it today, or any day. Because for those who love the theater, every day is World Theatre Day.
…just for fun:
