Storytelling Question

It's called Storytelling

Is there a time onstage in front of an audience when it is actually better and maybe even a little more interesting to tell the story rather than show it?

(RLewis, you got me thinking on this.)

1) When you only want to showcase one person's interpretation of the details/morals of the story

2) When the story is too complex and lengthy to represent on-stage in real-time

3) Vestigial elements to the story that cannot be cut but can be condensed

4) Revealing an introverted character's intentions

Yes. I think it's more common than we may think--anytime an actor has a monologue.
