New Life #379 – The Theater Experience
Dr. Michael Laitman in conversation with Oren Levi and Nitzah Mazoz


What is it about the theater that makes it such a moving experience? How does it work to make a person identify with the characters on stage, and how can a person be positively affected by a play?

When you go to the theater, you prepare yourself to be influenced by a special environment. This is how it operates on us. Sometimes a play may remind us of past experiences that have been sweetened. It shows us what happened and what should happen. The theater can teach us a moral. It has a great educational potential.

Identifying with the characters, a play with educational value is written to bring a person to a higher human level. The audience can be prepared for the show starting from the moment people enter the theater.

When a person comes to a play, he is filled to such a degree that he forgets about his own life for a couple of hours and is absorbed in the story. This is especially evident with young children. See how fascinated they are when they watch a play or a movie. After watching a play that has an educational value, you return to your own life as a different person, you grow wiser.
