Why do people still go to plays? Film, TV and the Internet deliver entertainment that frequently borrows from and mimics the art form, and sometimes can just be a recording of a play, but the theater lives on.Maybe it’s the experience of being in an audience, rubbing shoulders with strangers and experiencing something together. Or maybe it’s the electricity in the air between that audience and the performers onstage. Either way, a theater troupe called the Department of Badassery is trying to figure out if virtual reality can do what other tech cannot: Re-create the feeling of being at a live play.
