I've always liked when bands are theatrical with rock operas/concept albums. I've never known anybody who feels the same way which is why I'm asking you guys. What do you think about theatrical rock? Some examples are David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, Pink Floyd, The Who, ect.

You guys brought up a lot of bands I forgot. But let's not get theatrical rock and prog mixed up! Marilyn Manson and David Bowie dress up and do crazy **** which is why I consider them theatrical but whatever.

The most divine theatrical band ever in my opinion though is early Genesis Peter Gabriel era!

well you said Concept aswell.....concept and theatrical albums aren't really the same thing. Does that make Slipknot a theatrical band aswell?

I like concept albums. Gives me a reason to listen the album as a whole instead of individual songs. Though the downside to it is that I tend to just listen to the album from start to finish and even after listening to it over 50 times I won't be able to tell you which song is which unless clearly stated in the lyrics or the song is really awesome and makes me want to listen to it a few more times before continuing on with the album.
