When I was in high school, my mother and I attended almost every traveling Broadway musical show that came to Denver. She bought the tickets as Christmas or birthday presents but there was another gift, the opportunity to share the show with her.
I always remember our car rides back home; we would talk about the show the whole way.
After having a conversation about “Showgirls” or “Bring In ‘Da Noise Bring In ‘Da Funk,” the musicals always seemed more significant and profound after our discussions than the hundreds of times I would listen to the CD soundtracks. Our talks opened up new thoughts and ideas about a particular show that I had never considered previously.
It wasn’t until I went to a few theater performances alone, however, that I realized how much the company of others can add to the whole viewing experience.
Just as the performers hope for a full house to share their art, the individuals in the auditorium need someone with whom to critique the show during intermission and to whisper comments to throughout the performance.
In short, I believe in order to truly enjoy the theater or a concert, or whatever, one needs to include other people.
