Stageworks Theatre: Creating a Comeback!


It seems that throughout history, most epochs are defined as “before” and “after.” Our modern calendar is split between BC (or “BCE” to modern audiences) and AD. Every time travel story ever seems to mark the assassination of JFK as a reality-splitting event. Many of us remember a world before the Cold War until that fateful day when Reagan said, “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” and the Berlin Wall and the Iron Curtain both came tumbling down. And no one can deny that this is a different world than it was pre-9/11.


No matter the significance or lack thereof of a world-changing turning point, we can pinpoint it to a specific moment even years after the fact. Whether it’s personally important but cosmically innocuous – such as the day we get married – or universally profound – such as the invention of The Pill, the realization of HIV and AIDS, or the accidental discovery of penicillin, we can look back and say, This… is when it happened.
