I'm just curious as to what others find appealing in these fan productions that I don't. Maybe I'm just not seeing something? Or just letting a prejudice get in the way?
On the other hand, why do some fans prefer these fan productions but spurn the official productions? Clearly the recasting of parts isn't the problem, since both official and fan productions have recast. Is it the differing sets? The effects? The script and dialogue delivery?
I just want to understand the appeal of fan productions even if I never share the same the opinion of them as others do. That's where I am puzzled.
