Dimensions.Posted: October 17, 2011
I’ve been taking #NewPlay’s injunction seriously; that is, to envision the future of theater. To help me form an opinion, I have two questions for the community of practice, and I would welcome your answers:
(1) What plays are better presented in a large proscenium setting than in a smaller black box or thrust stage setting?
(2) How is the experience of watching a play in a large proscenium setting different from watching a film on a big screen?
(I’ll wait to post my answers, because your answers may temper mine.)
