Broadway Shows are Entertaining

Broadway shows offer a unique experience to viewers - one that definitely cannot be topped by a movie theater. Seeing a show draws in the audience in a special way.

I love musicals. They are so much fun and some of the best are Broadway shows. I love so many different Broadway shows, like "Avenue Q," "Rent," and "Wicked." But, sometimes it is hard to get to New York to actually see those Broadway shows. So, it is especially enjoyable when those Broadway shows go on tour.

The first time I saw a Broadway show, it was on tour. I saw "Rent" and it was so amazing. They replicated the original set, costumes, and lights and made sure to adapt it to each new stage and setting. But, it was equally amazing. The singing and acting was so good. I know that I cried multiple times. My parents went with me and they loved it, too.

There is something so magical about musicals. Something about the music can just pull you right into the emotions of the play. Singing and music, in general, can just make your soul soar to new heights or bring you to the lowest low. There is something that makes even the sad parts feel good in a way. Musicals can be very cathartic that way.

But, there is something very different about plays without singing that can be just as moving. Living with and through the things that the characters go through on stage is so amazing. You get sucked into the circumstances of the play and go along for the roller coaster ride, the arc of the show. And I think that a truly good piece of theater is one in which all of the characters are sympathetic. What I mean is that there is no one that is completely "evil" and no one that is completely "good." This makes me think more about their reasons and rationales. It is more thought provoking and causes me to empathize more. In this kind of play, there are no easy answers. And, hopefully, it causes viewers to discuss it with the people that they saw the play with, asking questions like "who was right?" or "what would you have done in that person's situation?"

Sometimes, I become so attached to characters, I talk about them as if they are real. It's usually at that point that I realize how good the play is. If I am imagining the characters in situations outside the play itself, then I know that the playwright and the actors have done such an amazing job bringing the character to life, that I can think about what they would do in certain situations. This, I think, is the point of theater. To make the audience think and to make them question their society, their moralsPsychology Articles, and their values.
