It's in some ways a profound question: What is the appeal of "live"?
Nobody before the twentieth century would have even understood the question, of course, and that may furnish at least some of the answer. Perhaps it's an atavistic appeal, a reminder of the way human beings lived before modern times.
But even network TV understands there is a practical benefit, hence all the "live musicals" over the last few years -- and audiences have loved to offer running commentary on social media in a way that they don't do for pre-recorded shows.
As the article mentions, some theater companies -- like Theater of War Productions -- have taken advantage of the "liveness" of digital theater, by including a chat function.
