Going to the theater to see the play added a sense of professionalism. I was in the front row, so being so close to the actors allowed me to be apart of the story and zone out all interruptions from the outside world. When the audience quieted and the lights went down, it tuned out the distractions and allowed me to fully focus on the ideas expressed by the actors. The role of place in the Good Life is to allow you to feel connected to your surroundings. When a person feels connected to their surroundings, they are able to fully experience everything.
I attended the play with one of my friends. This helped enhance my experience because someone was able to share in my anticipation and excitement. When we received the playbill we talked about the different aspects and what we were going to expect. After the play, it allowed me to talk with someone and address any questions I had about the play. When experiences are shared, it connects us to others and allows us to interact.
The performance allowed me to see and appreciate my culture differently by showing me a historical struggle that I did not know existed. I knew very little about the subject matter before I saw the play. The play allowed me to see the struggle between the theater and the church that I did not know about before attending the play. The subject matter resonated with me because I am Catholic and I used to act in plays. I now appreciate how important the theater was in history and how much it has evolved.
