Theatre is timeless and ubiquitous. Though many, many theaters exist in cities like New York and Los Angeles, that’s not the only place they are.

For those of us not living in these overpopulated coastal cities, it is tempting to get down on ourselves; saying things like,

This past weekend, I attended a wedding near Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It was my boyfriend’s friend’s wedding.
