patrick stewart speaks . . .
. . . about an actor's contract with the audience. An article in the Star Tribune that includes material from a speech Stewart gave to the National Press Club.
Good article. I think the things he cites about particular performances of particular works happening at particular times are the reason that live theater and live music will never be made obsolete. You can see all the movies and listen to all the albums you like (and those can have powerful effects, don't get me wrong) but there's something about being there that's just inescapable. I'm tempted to try to get to another showing of the Guthrie's Virgina Woolf to see the differences.
