The other day, I attended a Joffrey Ballet performance of Romeo & Juliet. It was exquisite! The dance forms were perfect. Imagine Shakespeare with no voice or lines! I had seen Romeo & Juliet done through ballet in Boston a few years ago. Both times were charms!
We know that the play is hundreds of years old, but this is where 2014 kicked in. As I sat on the upper level and looked down during intermission, I noticed a sea of lights. Cell phones were lit up as people occupied themselves during the lull time.
Many of the attendees were well up in age, but that did not show because many were attuned to the social media network. They checked messages, texted or whatever as they silently connected with others as they waited. Amazing!
