Before we had movies in America, people went to the theater. As great as movies are, they really can’t beat the experience of being in a room with a real audience and real actors, watching a story and characters unfold right in front of your eyes. Even though the bulk of our entertainment today comes from something involving a screen, live theater is still very much a part of the entertainment industry in America. On this blog, I will be covering those who are covering the world in theater.
