The Play's the Thing...

The Tony Awards are on tonight. I am a real lover of the theatre, and though I've never seen a Broadway play or musical, but I have seen many locally created productions. I love what theatre can do to take you away on a trip of the imagination, or teach real truths of our world and the people who surround us.

I have to admit that one of my favorite musicals of all time is nominated for a Tony. South Pacific is one of those timeless musicals that reminds us about how painful it is when discrimination and intolerance is a real part of every day life.

But the best part of theatre for me is it stimulates thought and conversation that can change a person's point of view, or maybe even a community's.
