Ask someone where they are most comfortable and why. Every answer will be different from the next. Or will it? Today’s culture is so caught up in what is “cool” and what everyone else is doing and saying that we have become a people programmed to act and respond a certain way. But are people truly happy? For a long time I was criticized for voicing what I loved to do and so I conformed. I wasn’t happy though. Sure, I put on a smile and said all was good but I was never happier than when I was on stage. The stage is where I am most comfortable and where I am truly able to be myself. It doesn’t matter if I am dancing, singing, acting, as long as I am performing on stage I am thriving. I wish it was just that easy, but it took me a long time to be able to be okay with who I am and what I love to do. If I could earn a living performing on Broadway and doing exactly what I love with other people that love it just as much as I do, I would be unstoppable. Theatre has the ability to connect with audiences in a way that very few arts do. The theatre is a place for people to escape reality for just a little, but what they don’t realize is that we are allowing them to confront reality. Bringing Reality A Voice Onstage.
