Why the Bee?

As you can see, there's a new title image.  We have some big changes in store for Mad Theatrics, and I thought I'd give a little taste of what's to come. 

To start, Mad Theatrics is adopting the honey bee as its emblem.  There are a few reasons why:
  • The honey bee is task oriented.  It delves into the rough stuff of nature and from the raw material it gathers, produces honey.  Honey is the rare food that never spoils, perennially providing sustenance.
  • To "have a bee in one's bonnet" is to obsess over an idea.  (Something I do with frequency.)
  • In heraldry, the bee is a symbol of tenacity and, particularly for the French, resurrection.  Those are two traits no doubt significant to theatre makers.
  • Bees don't sting unless disturbed.
Plus, those yellow and black stripes are simply dashing.
