the essential is to excite the spectators. If that means playing hamlet on a flying trapeze or in an aquarium, you do it. – orson welles

‘We believe no one should pass up live theater due to its cost. We rely on  donations–not ticket sales–to fund our seasons, so we can provide a first-rate live theater experience for the price of a movie ticket.’


once a person has all the things they need to live, everything else is entertainment.

  1. Back in the day, when I was socially aware, I used to enjoy Shakespeare in The Park. Now that I am not socially aware, I miss it so much more, since I cannot experience that magic no mas.
    However.
    I still read Hamlet. (and Kiss Me Kate)

    Great post.
    (Sorry for my satirical comments–did not mean them to come off that way)

  2. Ha! That was playing at a theater right by a metro station I often use, but since that particular station is the hub of homelessness in the city, and the stairs are one big urinal, I thought it was on a more…local…scope. Dang, sorry I missed it!
    And great poem & quote, as usual!
