A play stands here with its full weight and extent realized. We faithfully create an ideal theatrical experience, while not idealizing, as so much of the power of a play rests within what can not occur. In the words of Edward Albee, "A play, is inevitable to the stage." This places obligations on both a play and its audience, and is why we simply point a camera at the stage. A play must imply what cannot, for whatever reason, be effectively presented. The theatrical audience embraces this, and is prepared for a distinctively subjective experience -- one perhaps more so than is to be found in any other genre. The best theatre rests within the balance of portrayed events and what they evoke, differently, in the mind of every audience member. To embellish a play with modern advancements would render something else. We present plays. What cannot be done live will not be done.
The ultimate goal of plays seen here is to be again or eventually produced in their true element, onstage, in a live theatrical environment before an audience. Until then, welcome to the next best thing.
