What Inspired Theatres To Be Popular?
Theatre or stage acting has been a popular form of art since Shakespearean time and beyond that to the 5th Century Greek tragedians era. Theatre emanated out of two major forms or overall themes. On the one hand, there was comedy and on the other was tragedy. Play would provide comic relief for the citizens of a tribe or town or city. Especially during war time, theatre was a way to express the current social situation either through a tragic and realistic lens or a parody and comedic perspective. Theater has been a form of art from decades and centuries of previous times.
Today, theatre has recreated itself from the stage of acting plays to musicals, avant garde and children shows enacted live. Further, theater has remained constant in one area of depiction. That is, providing the audience with a form of entertainment. Whether that entertainment is comedic or tragic or both, the stage has been the play for performers to unite with an audience and create a world outside reality for enjoyment. Patrons of the arts have experienced theater in many different contexts. Theaters have also been music halls for classical and rock performances too.
