PerformingView – So Much Theatre

By Kaye Osborn

The dog days of August have arrived. There is still a lot of good theater to see and embrace. Season subscriptions are available with many theatrical companies locally and out-of-town. You can get more for your buck!

There are different ways to access and enhance a live performance. You can borrow a listening device with allows you to set your own volume for hearing the performers plus it blocks out annoying conversations or candy wrappers. Some shows have open captioning and even personal rolling computers with the complete script. If a Sign Language interpreter is preferred, give the theater ample time to make those necessary arrangements. Personally, I like all three options.

Now, let’s take a peek behind the curtains!
