Pericles

Pericles

While watching a production of Pericles by Freehold Theatre’s ETI group, I realized that a stage production is like a race.  The initial moment when the production takes off is an indicator for its overall success.  And if the actors are not present at key emotional moments, it will take all much more effort to get back on track for subsequent moments to be credible and real for the audience.

Essentially if the players are not vested at the onset of the play, the audience will not be vested at the end.
