"Both. I know you are going to say that is not possible, but it is true. Ok, not so sure - stage. Stepping on stage is stepping into another world, and it doesn't stop until the play stops.

So for an hour and a half, you are totally somebody else. It's amazing, I can't describe it, and if I try, I would sound cheesy.

But it's just, as soon as you are on stage, you are somebody else, and it's amazing.
