Theatergoer Has Difficulty Finding Words to Describe Emotion

January 15, 2017

“Words are very difficult to describe. I found it very emotional, I found it very uplifting and exciting to look at the movements and to experience the depth of feeling that they express through movement, though the music, through the instruments, through the singing.  It was beyond words for me.”


“I cried through parts of it, I laughed through parts of it. … The one I cried the most was the one with the little girl and the photographer. I get choked up … seeing the emotion of everything. And knowing that what they portrayed is still happening today has a very deep meaning for me.”


“I guess I keep going back to the beyond words.”


“The music can express what I feel but I cannot put into words.”
