“Love art in yourself, and not yourself in art”
“Movies will make you famous; Television will make you rich; But theatre will make you good.”
“Life is a theatre set in which there are but few practicable entrances.”
“A stage play ought to be the point of intersection between the visible and invisible words.”
“The theatre is a place where one has time for the problems of people to whom one would show the door if they came to one’s office for a job.“
“The theater, which is in no thing, but makes use of everything; gestures, sounds, words, screams, light, and darkness; rediscovers itself at precisely the point where the mind requires a language to express its manifestations. To break through language in order to touch life is to create or recreate the theatre.“
The theater is a great equalizer: it is the only place where the poor can look down on the rich.
Theatre is a way of showing us lives far beyond our own experience; but it lets us into those stories by reflecting our own lives.
