Live performance provides immense pleasure and it is considered among the most gratifying and memorable experiences for audiences.
There is a difference between watching something on a television and going to see a live performance. The immediacy of live performance, provides audience members a relationship with the performers that would not be able to be found otherwise. Audience members feel the actors a more imediate experience with the actors speaking or singing to them.
Live theatre performances also offer family and friends the ability to support eachother by attending the performances and give people a chance to show off their many talents.
