Ladies and Gentlemen, it has been a distinct pleasure to be part of your online experience in the Performing Arts. It’s been an interesting blog to write, with a subject matter as broad as “the Performing Arts,” and at times it’s been frustrating in that there’s so much to write about that just choosing something has been difficult.
We live in exciting times – the “death of live performance” that was feared with the advent of digital media never happened, and if anything there is more live performances simply because they can now be webcast, broadcast, etc. More people than ever are appreciating and understanding dance and music thanks to the reality shows and the specials, and Broadway itself is booming. Suddenly, thanks to “High School Musical,” being in a school musical is cool again, something that makes me wish I could go back to my high school days and point out to my young nerdy self.
But all things have a beginning, a middle, and an end, and this will be the final blog entry in this particular blog. I am off to other writing endeavors, and B5Media has plenty of other blogs covering specific parts of the performing arts. I’d like to thank Arieanna, my content editor, for her guidance and patience while I’ve been here.
