People don't go to the theatre for many reasons, all of them unfortunate. For some, "theatre" is a stuffy rendition of The Nutcracker at Christmas, sweating through itchy clothes your parents crammed you into when you were too young to resist. Others remember high school outcasts embarrassing themselves at assemblies with interpretive dance. Of course, some of us were those outcasts and want to leave that chapter far, far behind.

Bullshit.
