Hockey is better than theater. More specifically, seeing hockey is more exciting than seeing theatre. Even more specifically, experiencing a New York Rangers game (this season) is more exciting is far better than sitting through any theater for young audiences production you can name.
Are you ready to drop the gloves? Are you ready to “do the dance”? Are you ready to risk 5 minutes for fighting? I hope that you are. But before you do, you should know: I love theater. But I also love hockey. And it’s not the fighting that I love (although I can admit that I stand when it happens), but it’s the speed, the skill, the competition and the enthusiasm emanating from the crowd that I feel even when I am 10 blocks away from Madison Square Garden on the way to a Rangers game. And I want to feel the same way when I am on my way to a TYA production.
For more of this rant, look for the next issue of TYA Today. (And if you have an opinion, tell me…and help me write the article.)
