Theatrical Events Provide Diverse Entertainment
The ancient Greeks believed that theater provided catharsis-a much-needed release of emotions-in its viewers, leading to a greater purification of the mind and body. While this Aristotelian way of thinking has long fallen out of fashion, it still holds true that the theater gives people a chance to escape, to insert themselves into the drama of characters whose lives are radically different from their own. Theater gives us a chance to learn, to exercise our powers of empathy. It is through theater and other mediums of art that culture is born.
