This is a photo from a few months ago when Lori and I went to see/hear John Williams at The Hollywood Bowl. This is one of those few times when it pays to sit further back because the audience really gets into it.
It had been a few years since we'd been to a performance, but going to the Hollywood Bowl, and a John Williams performance in particular, was a treat we regularly gave ourselves. But this year, waiting for the shuttle, we knew that things were... different... from the last time we'd been as Princess Leia was waiting in line with us. Yeah, turns out the Star Wars portion of each show is nothing less than a full-out audience participation extravaganza. Imagine looking in every direction and seeing light sabers bouncing in sync to the music.
