Inspired by the Shakespearian play, someone once said, “All the world’s a stage, some of us just have better seats,” but what if you cannot even get into the theater to take your seat? Imagine you just watched the Tony Awards, the performers were spectacular, the musical numbers are stuck in your head, and you cannot wait to buy tickets to this year’s best musical. You go online, research the theater where the production is playing, and your heart sinks. There is a small step into the front of the theater, and the nearest handicapped bathroom is located in a hotel next door. It would be too onerous of a task to attempt to see the production in your motorized wheelchair. Instead you are left hoping that they will make a movie version.
