  1. It’s awesome that you talked about how the magic of live theater allows the audience to see performers actually fly high above the stage. It’s cool to think that you can see actors sing while floating in the air. I think it must be a very hard job to do. Thanks for mentioning how a show like this is so unique and a must-watch.
