I was hanging up Christmas decorations at home and had my music tuned to, not holiday music, but Broadway show tunes.
I love Broadway.
And that includes the off Broadway productions – so I’ll say I love live theater.
Sitting in the audience, excited, waiting for the curtains to open (if not already).
The orchestra begins to play and then the show begins.
I really really miss live theater.
My promise to myself is that when we get to our steady state where live theater is allowed again, I will make a more concerted effort to attend performances.
Meanwhile I am starting to watch the live performances and/or movies that are on the various networks (on weekends, at night, when able…we are under a second wave so weekends are no longer sacred).
The recordings are not the same, but I still enjoy the chills, warmth and excitement of performers showcasing the fantastic work of writers and backstage staff and producers.
For now, I hum along to the online station, try to guess which show a song is from, laugh and cry at various lyrics, and just allow myself to feel good.
