So tired we are of audience participation, even of the word. Yet this is different. This is playing. Maybe the ultimate pleasure in the performing arts is playing a part. In thoughts mostly, but sometimes also literally. Joining requires imitation first. Daring also. Just ask children. On the playground you observe the girls skipping in and out of the rope. You watch for a long time. Then the appetite rises, the pounding heart, and all at once you shout: I’ll join!
