THEATRE TALK
"Once in the course of an ill-spent life, it was my fate to go to the theatre some two hundred and fifty times in one year. On business, I need not add; one would hardly do that sort of thing for pleasure. I was paid to go.
"By the end of the year - and for that matter, long before our planet has completed its orbit around the sun - I had come to the conclusion that I was not paid enough for this particular job."
-ALDOUC HUXLEY
Vanity, June 1924

"The theatre is two boards, two trestles, and a passion."  - LOPE DE VEGA

"...I'd rather lose a batch of big money just to get the feel of that live audience. 
You just can't beat that! My first taste of it came with Hatful of Rain. I'll never forget the time I thought I heard a door slam during the every performance. It was driving me bats. Finally I blew up, only to be told that it wasn't a door slamming at all, but the sound of fifteen hundred ladies snapping open their purses to reach for the Kleenex. Boy was I surprised. But did I ever love it, after that."
-SHELLEY WINTERS quoted by John Gruen

"Not going to the theatre is like making one's toilet without a mirror."
- ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER
"I love criticism just so al it's unqualified praise." - NOEL COWARD

(How Gene Wilder, born Jerome Silberman, chose his professional name). "I had always liked Gene because of Thomas Wolfe's character Eugene Grant in Look Homeward, Angel and Of Time and the River. And I was always a great admirer of Thornton Wilder." - GENE WILDER

"When I'm on stage, I guess it's like the way it is for a lot of people when they take a drug. It's another place. It's a privilege to get on a stage." - ELIZABETH ASHLEY

Brook's Atkinson's pithy review of a flop named Grandma's Diary: "Opened by Mistake."
-The New York Times (Sept. 23, 1948)

"Somewhere a long time ago, I wrote that the theatre was my wife and the movies my mistress. I wouldn't say the same thing today. If I had to choose between the film and the theatre, I would certainly choose the theatre. Movies are an obsession; the theatre, on the other hand, is an agreeable metier which one pursues with tranquil joy."
-INGMAR BERGMAN
quoted by Edith Sorel in "Ingmar Bergman: "I confect Dreams and Anguish"
(The New York Times, Arts & Leisure Section January 22, 1978).

When theatre critic Alexander Woollcott was asked to compose his own epitaph, he responded with:
Alexander Woollcott
Who dies at the age of 92.
He never has imitation fruit in his dining room.

"I would rather have the tiers filled with audience than have the audience filled with tears." - ANONYMOUS PRODUCER
*   *   *
"It is certainly time I went back to the theatre. Not because it is the supposed right things to do, and not because you have a live audience in front of you. It is the quality of work. And, more than that, every time you get on stage it reminds you of all the reasons you wanted to be an actor in the first place." - ROBIN ELLIS
quoted by Michael Owen in The New York Times
*   *    *
"The theatre is a place where you can hear every variety of cough." - ROSE MORTINSON
*   *   *
"... the theatre is not a natural world for those who question whatever is meant by glamour. One must, one should, pay fame the respect it deserves, or leave it alone and someplace else to go. I have not been able to do either and thus have often made myself and other people uncomfortable. - LILLIAN HELLMAN in an Unfinished Woman
