What makes theater stand out from all of the other art forms?
What attracts us to theater to make us directors, playwrights, critics?
What makes it different from a band playing a gig in a small venue, an opera at the Met, a painting, a ballet?
Do our own personal tastes effect our preference of art?
Is theater an equal art?
It seems like a deceptively simple question at first, but there has to be even a vague reason that draws us to theater and makes us stay with it.
