Although I have already been to München twice, this will be a completely new experience. The last time I was in Germany, I knew next to nothing about German theater, and even if I had seen a play, I probably wouldn't have appreciated it as much as I will now. I am very excited to finally have the opportunity to see an approach to theater that is quite different to that in the United States. We have talked a lot about German theater, but actually seeing it performed is a completely different experience. I hope to be able to understand as much German as possible while I'm watching the plays and to learn useful or interesting phrases. I also hope to learn from the many actors I will watch, so that I can get new ideas and improve my own acting.
