E-catalogue 77: The Play's the Thing
If a play is performed and no audience is there to see it, did it happen? As we crest the season of summer theater and other types of outdoor performance art in the current era, that question becomes less a conundrum and more a fact of life. The summer blockbuster—the irresistible eye candy that has been a mainstay of the film industry for decades—is on hiatus. Without an audience, the arts wither. Books, however, only require an audience of one. We therefore present the premiere of a wide variety of performances from which to choose as a buffer against an artless summer.
