THE SPATIAL EXPERIENCE
My experience at the theater was quite memorable. Albeit, I was seated toward the back of the theater. Once the lights went dim in the large theater and the actors walked through the aisle, I became excited with curiosity about what was about to happen. The theater was filled with colors and a stage that felt as if it were right in front of me. I became captivated just by the opening of the curtain. The hush of the audience made it seem as if the strangers surrounding me were not even there.
THE SOCIAL EXPERIENCE
I arrived at the play about thirty minutes early but spent half of the time trying to find a parking spot. Once I finally found a spot in a parking garage that was a good distance away, I walked towards the Reitz praying I was headed in the right direction. I arrived at an almost empty hall where I saw two girls taking a selfie in front of the theater next to a check in desk. The sight of the selfies gave me reassurance that I must be in the right place. I entered into a packed theater full of strangers. Going without friends is the way I enjoy doing things that are school related. It made me feel as if my attention was with the play. I also did not like the fact that I knew I was surrounded by many students who lack an appreciation for the theater.
