Theatre has lasted for more than 2,500 years for a reason. In the safe space of theater, we, whether as a group or as an individual, are enlightened, enthralled, angered, horrified, and surprised at what we are experiencing. It is not the job of artists to make us comfortable. Artists are transgressive and their job as storytellers is to speak the words truthfully.
Theatre reflects society and, even in older works, the messages we find within can seem just as relevant and current as to what is happening today. At its best, theater is reactive. We can experience human fragilities and follies, prejudices, joys, and desires all the while enveloped in the welcoming expanse that constitutes a theater.
