I just wanted to share with you a wonderful interaction I had with one of our donors last week. I was in the Mendel Room at intermission for In the Next Room and started chatting with one of newer supporters and her husband. Like many of the donors I've been speaking with lately, they wanted to talk about the economy, how was Berkeley Rep faring, etc. And then they said, "But it is so good to be here tonight...and to laugh. And not just to laugh, but to be with other people who are laughing. That's what theatre is about...that sense of community. You don't get this sitting in front of your computer watching YouTube."
It was a great reminder that especially in times like this, that the work that each of us does in this theatre is important and has meaning in people's lives. That's a great feeling.
