Wow! Great post!!

Very nice sir, and, though I don't think my straits were ever nearly as dire as yours, a familiar story.

Fantastic post Isaac.

It's nice to know I'm not the only person who sings to themselves while walking around.

I also talk aloud a lot when alone. Go figure.

Thanks again for sharing, I feel like I learned a lot about you.
Best,

Thanks for sharing this! Yes, a very familiar story.

I feel like, in some ways, theater provided an outlet for everything that interested me, and it was stimulating in a way that sports or pop culture wasn't for me (and thus closed many portals for relating to my peers). Finding theater was like finding where i was supposed to be my whole life. it was the first time i belonged.

I get the sense you felt that way too.

As someone who saw that production of Falsettoland (and enjoyed the hell out of it), I thank you for bringing me back, albeit briefly, to a very exciting and troubling time in my life. I don't retain the love you clearly have for the Studio, but I guess it worked out in the end, as our paths crossed again in the real world. That's the miracle of Judaism.

Wow Isaac. I missed this post when you originally posted it somehow.
I'm glad you linked to it now. Theatre saved my life too and that's why I'm doing drama therapy. I 'm now taking conscious steps to directly help people via the medium of theatre. I too believe in it that much.
Thank you for writing this. It brought tears to my eyes.

Drama Therapy

This a marvellous post and it's so refreshing to read about how the creative arts have helped. If only the governments of the world would appreciate this.
