Leaving aside the use and misuse of the rhetorical device, the original post by MBG was absolute in its terms, and absolutism around here is not unfamiliar even though it is almost never accurate. The OP was making its point by insisting (as fact) that there were no dissenters (highly unusual or not). I'd add that, although what Dramedy said is indeed highly unusual and surprising in this precinct, it is certainly not true that the vast majority of people overall elevate live theatre above something they can watch from their couch (ditto, of course, even for going to a movie theatre). This is one reason I feel so strongly about streaming being an unhealthy thing for the theatre. It vitiates the #1 selling point live theatre has.
