Amanda's Theatre Joy

On my other blog, I have been participating in an event called "Reverb11". You can go to Too XYZ to get a better idea of what it is, but in short, bloggers from all over the world follow prompts for each day in December, and blog based on same. The point is to become more introspective as 2011 comes to a close.

I hope you will read my posts over there for Reverb11 as well as those of other people. Yet today I ran across a post for Reverb that I think fits in so nicely with not only the subject but the message of Always Off Book, that I just had to share it with you here, loyal blog readers.

Today's reverb prompt was about describing a moment of "pure, unadulterated joy" from this year. The originator of the prompt, Amanda, writes about how she was struck by such a moment a few weeks ago as she was taking part in her publicity duties for a theatre company.

She goes on to talk about how much the company, and theatre in general has meant to her over the last 15 years. It is this type of company, and this type of actor and theatre board member that I love to encounter, and with whom I long to work whenever possible.

It is an excellent piece, both for reverb, and for theatre lovers like myself, and many of you. Go there, read, and do leave a comment!
