BEST MEDICINE REP
“A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book.” ~Irish Proverb
“If our theater can’t provide the one, we will certainly provide the other.” ~Best Medicine Rep
Why are we here?
To entertain. To bring joy. To foster community and learning through shared laughter. To lighten our shared burden of existence for a short while.
Broadly defined and properly presented, comedy encompasses all of human experience. It can make us laugh and make us cry. It can bring joy and it can bring anger. It makes us think and makes us forget. It exalts and ridicules. It can divert, and it can focus. Comedy levels life’s playing field.
Story is that which gives comedy context. It is what allows empathy and purpose. Performed stories (theater) provide for the communal experience, the shared joy of laughter that we seek to achieve. Theater brings a community together, eliciting pride and engagement, a sense of ownership and cooperation.
We believe that the comic theater is the cure for what ails us. But, having declared the above, we would like to make one thing clear: Shakespeare is dead. And if we see another production of A Midsummer’s Night Dream, we will collectively puke.
