With our episode on Activism coming out at the end of April, Broadway Cares Web Developer Víctor M. Rodríguez shares why he chose to participate in the March for Science in Washington D.C. earlier last month.
"It's my belief that in the theater community, the richness of cultures and ideas, and the intersection of the impressive spectrum of professional fields that come together to create art are so vast that it inevitably opens the perspective and empathy of its people."
"It's a natural progression. I come from a science background. It was only until I studied musical theater and entered the realm of the performing arts that my view of the world became complete and open; like if I were missing a piece of understanding of which I never knew I was missing."
"Art will do that to you. It'll push an introvert with social anxiety like me to go marching with thousands of people. Like science, art helps to save the world."
