Bar Harbor
This was the most the internet has made me laugh at one sitting in years. First, the trailer for The Hobbit part 2 comes out. Then a pair of fans post a silly video of them squeeing at the trailer -- mildly funny. *Then* someone grabs a bunch of actors during the filming of The Hobbit part 3, and films *them* watching and reacting to the fan video. *THEN*, the fans filmed their reaction to the actor's reaction to the fans' reaction to the trailer.

Come for the meta, stay for the ever-more-extreme facial expressions and contagious laughter.

If only the actors in live theater could ever see such audience reactions, instead of having to infer it from giggles, gasps and the occasional loud sighs.

I saw a discussion of the Globe recently, that mentioned as a side note how performing in natural light, in mid-afternoon, let the actors be much more in communication with the audience than standard modern lighting allows for.

I can attest that we start our plays in natural light, end them with lights, and there is a difference--certainly our players do establish some communication--but not that much!
