Nostalgia for the unknown

Listening to My Fair Lady on the way to work today and feeling cheated that I didn't grow up in the era of great Broadway musicals. Imagine being a part of the audience experiencing Julie Andrews and Rex Harrison sparring on stage.

The end of live theatre as the dominant performing arts experience is, in my judgement, a loss. Electrifying if it's well done. Carefully rehearsed yet unpredictable--something the movie can never achieve.

Yes, I WAS listening to My Fair Lady on the way to work. Suppress your snickering.
