When I decided to take a class on Shakespeare that first quarantined semester, I figured it would be the same as the rest. I was familiar with the Bard as I had read some of his plays throughout high school, and I thought the class would be one I’d breeze through and maybe learn a thing or two about tragedy vs comedy. I had no idea at the time that my entire outlook on the pandemic would be changed from just one class, or that I would learn so much about how the world of theatre was coping.

A few months ago, one of my professors challenged us to write about why we decided to enter the world of theatre-- why we do what we do-- why we love what we love. After months of learning, growing, and inspiration, I think that I finally have the answer and an anecdote that I think perfectly captures the very moment when I decided what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. This is that story. This is that moment.
