In The Moment

It's amazing what a live audience, 30 years and some subtle changes to pacing can do. The unique bond of the performer and audience can create something like magic and can never be assumed. I once performed a scene in a play where I had everyone sobbing and seething like it was the end of the world; the very next week people in the audience were laughing so hard I had to hold for unexpected laughter on these exact same lines like it was the funniest they'd ever experienced. The recorded moment can't capture that energy. Each live performance is a unique bond between performer and audience, forever lost to the ether but we are better for it.
