They say that “all the world’s the stage and the men and women merely players”. If we get to pick, I’d like to be in charge of the lights.
I think that it’s a bad idea for all the men and women to play parts in it. Who does that leave to be in the audience? How many tickets could they possibly sell that way? Maybe some eccentric people will buy a few tickets for their pets, but not enough that there will be anyway for them to make their money back.
The parking will be a nightmare.
The special effects are pretty disappointing too – when in real life have you ever seen an explosion half as cool as the one when the Death Star blows up? The aurora borealis is the only special effect that comes close, and I’m not sure we should count that since it’s well known among late night talk radio enthusiasts that the northern lights are just UFO‘s exhaust. Can we count that as part of our world’s play? Or is it just a cameo walk on by someone else’s world? It’s a gray area.*
And don’t let anyone con you into buying a VIP backstage pass. Technically there is no backstage , unless you count the moon. And you wouldn’t be able to see much. Maybe the pyramids, but that’s about all. And they haven’t played a major part in the script for five thousand years.
*I thought about making a “gray area/ grey area” joke, but I decided not to. It probably wouldn’t have been a very good one, but I just want you all to know that I am aware that the opportunity existed.
