There is an acting term "The Sound of Listening" used in the theatre. If you have ever been in a stage play, you know exactly what that means. Without making a sound the audience projects a certain amount of enthusiasm, interest, and support of your work. When they gasp, giggle, and laugh all the better. That energy is unmistakable and it guides and inspires the actor to respond and perform in the most effective and persuasive way. The same process occurs when actors work on the set, because often times the director, camera crew and extras are within a few feet of them. That is why in class I constantly ask everyone to put down their cell phones and move into the seats closest to the actors. Not only is it respectful, it is great practice for when you are doing the real thing. No one likes to perform when the audience is preoccupied. Thanks in advance for supporting your fellow actors in this way. GG
