    The opening testimony of a Brazilian housemaid about her experiences as a mid and now in the Boal’s theater is worth reading. Boal's idea about the invisible theater is great. Torture is wrong and shameful to citizens of countries who practice it. What excited me the most was to find out that Chico Buarque de Hollanda composed Meu Caro Amigo song for Boal.
