This is a senior thesis from a student at the University of Minnesota.

I will be up front and tell you that this was created by a friend of mine, but I am not here to shill for him, this presentation really touched me and put into words many of my feelings about theater that I had been unable to effectively express.

I encourage you to give it a watch. The first part of the video is very religiously oriented, but the theatrical parallels become more clear in video 2.
