Q: Why do you go to the theatre?
A: It’s artistry I’ll never be capable of. To live in a city with all of this at your fingertips whenever you want and not go would be a waste. Why not escape for a few hours?I couldn’t pass that up.

Q: What would you say to a young person who didn’t think theatre was for them?
A: (Girl on Right) That’s ridiculous - it’s so fun! I mean, I’m a young person and I like going to the theatre because I just like watching stories. If you like movies, it’s just like a live-action movie! I’m originally from Queens, but currently living in Boston. Sometimes I volunteer at the theatres and I’m the youngest one there. Boston is a city of young people and I don’t see why more people don’t just go. I think it has an underrated theatre scene. I see a lot of plays that are really good and a lot of shows that were in Boston come to New York.

Q: What would you say to a young person who didn’t think theatre was for them?
A: (Girl on Right) It’s just so amazing to see people do what they like! Just see one [show] and I’m sure you’ll want to see all of them!
Q: Why do you go to the theatre?
A: (Girl on Right) I’m a singer and [when I go to the theatre], I’m learning about how to make it. I’m from France.
Q: What differences do you see from theatre in France and here?
A: (Girl on Right) There, it’s more like business. And here, I feel like it’s art first.
A: (Girl on Left) She played Snow White in Paris!
A: (Girl on Right) I came [and saw theatre in NYC] awhile ago and went back to Paris and wanted to act. It was exciting because it was a main part. I hope to be on Broadway someday!

Q: Why did you guys come see this show?
A: (Girl on Right) I do rush and lottery a lot. We didn’t expect to get tickets to this. [Neil Patrick Harris] said it was life-changing, so I guess we had to see it!

Q: Why do you go to the theatre?
A: Entertainment, inspiration, new energy.
Q: What would you say to a young person who didn’t think theatre was for them?
A: They have open their eyes to new ideas, new experiences. It’s not just sort of didactic act of watching people on stage, but the full experience is interesting.
