A building where one may watch a play: a group of actors, often a theatre company, acting out a story of sorts.

Personally, I find the theatre entertaining once in a while, but after being dragged there once too often I absolutely detest it. I have always preferred films to plays.
Sorry, I can't meet up tonight, I have to go to the theatre with my family. *Shudder*

What elitist actors say when people ask them why they are living in a box, because they are too embarased to say theater, like normal people. Also could come from the fact that they think they are too perfect for theater.
Right now I am working in theatre, and the joy I get from these thespian workings far outways my lack of worldly possesions
