Attending a Play is (Almost) Better Than a Raise
Of course, we’ve always known the benefits of live entertainment, but now there’s scientific proof that seeing a play is good for you.
Nicola Merrifield at The Stage reports on a study that discovered people who see at least two plays a year have a health and well being boost equivalent to a £1,000 (or $1,695 in America) annual pay raise.
Other well being boosters include attending music performances, participating in sports and visiting the library. If that’s not motivation to get out and see a show, I don’t know what is.
