Understandably hesitant at first with the idea of a ‚ÄúVirtual Performance‚ÄĚ I sat in the comfort of my home with an open mind willing and ready to experience what was about to be laid forth. I've seen many performances presented by American Stage so I knew the magic would be there, but there is something about the ‚Äúphysical connection‚ÄĚ that sort of ‚Äú...in the room where it happens‚ÄĚ that I missed so greatly here. That is not to diminish the understandably beautiful piece in which the fine folks at American Stage presented, and I completely admire their work here as we are all so much in need of live performances.
