The Truth About Encores

My uncle was a magician. When someone would ask him to do a trick again, he would say, “The first time is entertainment, the second time is education.”

Often times, when an audience asks us to perform something again, it’s not actually because they want to see it or hear it again, but rather they want to experience that same feeling they had the first time.

The success of an encore performance has more to do with recreating a feeling for our audience than recreating a performance.
