What I like about theater

I just saw a wonderful production of a wonderful play, and it got me thinking about the nature of theater.

The best thing about theater is the way in which it is completely the opposite of cinema. There is no camera. There is no editing. There are no special effects.

It’s just people on a bare stage creating the illusion of another world, using only words and facial expressions body language. It is this purity which makes it magical.
