I said nothing about “literal.” I was talking about McNally writing like people talk (which can be very poetic). The response was that Shakespeare wrote like people talked then which is not true. I wasn’t talking about musicals which are extremely accessible and a reason I love them. But none of this is what my initial post was about. It was about a beautiful theater experience I had and why it was special to me. And it was quite poetic the way I described it.
