Another Aesthetic, Musical Theatre

I was recently introduced to musical theatre this summer through my theatre major flat-mates. Theatre is another form of art, especially musical theatre, and this clip from Anything Goes really blows my mind as far color composition and theme. The musical element adds another layer to the overall experience of the audiences. It makes me wonder how all mediums of art (literary, performing, and visual arts) are connected and appreciated and why and how such forms of expression came about. They all seem to be related and can be judged on a relatively similar scale; taking the history of the performance, directors, actors and actresses into account can deepen a viewing experience just as knowing the history of an artist can deepen the appreciation of a painting. But for what purpose do we have such sensibilities?
