There is no right or wrong, no judgement, we are free to express ourselves and interpret art and theatre the way we see it.

The connection the actors, musicians, dancers, and artists make with their audience is so powerful, and a form of self-expression. As humans this bring us joy naturally, we enjoy being entertained and looking at art through the eyes of others.

Most messages are uplifting and motivating, as there are others that may be dark but meaningful, nonetheless situations we can all relate to in some form or another.

Furthermore, that message can encourage people to look within themselves and become confident and feel secure. The arts and live theatre truly bring us together and reminds us we are all unique and the same in so many ways.
