Welcome Theater Lovers
“Play goers, I bid you welcome! The theater is a temple and we are here to worship the gods of comedy and tragedy. Tonight, I am pleased to announce…” (Comedy Tonight | A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum)
To quote Rent, A Theater Lover was created “for someone who longs for a community of his (her) own” – well, that person happened to be me, known in real life as Megan Pedersen. Whether you like comedies, tragedies, musicals, dramas, satires or plays – this site is dedicated to you – my fellow play goers. Theater is meant to be shared and attended – A Theater Lover is dedicated to making this happen.
My job is simple. I buy tickets to shows and I encourage others to do the same. I’m a proud patron of the arts. Over the years, I have slowly immersed myself into the world of theater. Now, I love a small black box production of Burn This just as much as a Broadway blockbuster like Wicked. However, through all my theater ventures I struggled to find others who liked to attend more than the occasional 1 or 2 shows a year. I knew there had to be more of us out there.
Thus, A Theater Lover was born. I am here to connect you to the stage and others like us – the audience members. I am here to create a community of our own!
“The greater Salt Lake area, according to the Creative Class Group, has 40 percent more artists and entertainers than other cites of the same size.”* It is the mission of this Theater Lover to connect with just a few of these people and see what happens!
