Some things never change

Today was the first full day of showing our virtual reality theater experience to the public – the very first day’s performances of a new kind of live theater. And sure enough, for one of today’s performances the New York Times showed up.

After that performance (which I thought went well, but we will just have to see if the Times agrees), I said to our director that I thought there was an irony here.

He asked what I meant, so I explained. “Here we are,” I said, “creating a shared experience that is all about being together in the immediate moment. Yet it is only culturally validated when the Press shares it with the world.”

Our director just laughed. “Ken,” he said, “theater has always been like that.”
