Why is it so rare that we succeed in combining the two: the smart and the heart?
Trailing Spouse Blues had this awesome post recently about Smart Heart Art. How do we affect both the heart and the head at the same time with the emotional crux of a work? It’s easy to make you cry in a bad movie (hey I bawled when Macaulay Cukin died from the bee stings in My Girl) or it’s easy to throw writing blather at an audience that’s SUPPOSED to make an audience THINK.
But the art that makes you both think and feel? That’s something special. What theatre have you seen that has affected both your head and your heart?
