Quote of the Day
Music is very influential to my writing, as are theater and film.
I used to do lots of independent films and for a while I was very content living in New York City and doing independent movies and off-Broadway theater. I loved it, I had a really good time doing that, and I worked on a lot of projects that are very dear to my heart, both plays and films.
Memorial bracelets memorializing prisoners of war, missing in action, killed in action, and those who died of wounds or injuries sustained in a combat theater are authorized.
James F. Amos
Theater to me is acting but it's more real on film.
When I was doing theater for all those years in New York, I did a lot of classical theater, wearing big corsets and big dresses and doing dialects. It's interesting that once I moved to TV, I'm playing these scrappy, contemporary toughies.
I haven't been offered a lot of comedy. In theater, I've done quite a bit of comedy or dramas that included a lot of funny stuff. But in my TV work, those aren't the roles that I've been offered.
I'm such a theater geek.
I met the Colonel when Elvis was recording some song I'd written for one of his movies. Elvis was just having fun with the gang and all the Memphis boys and Colonel Parker was sitting over here in like a theater seat.
Celebrities in general are pretty democratic, just being in the theater. Plus, I'm from Chicago. But Obama's sensible... he's just a reasonable, sensible human being.
Now, when I started my theater, the modus operandi was having the actors stare right into the audience.
If I wasn't in the theater, I would be a hermit.
As I told you, from the time I was fifteen, I thought the theater was too much involved with actors trying to make the audience love them, being over emotional.
I want to do more movies. I feel like it's a totally different skill set than there is to theater. It's much more internal.
Jamie Campbell Bower
I'm an extrovert, I like to gesticulate and talk loud and stuff, and the theater is easy for me.

I got tackled once in a movie theater. I was with my mom and brother, and then suddenly I got hit from behind and sort of sprawled out on the candy counter.
Mystery Science Theater is really a postmodern show, it's really derived of many influences.
Well, really the way worked was that I had probably built fifty robots before Mystery Science Theater, and I had sold them in a store in Minneapolis in a store called Props, which was kind of a high end gift shop.
A lot of the shows that really become hit shows are often demonstrated, like Mystery Science Theater.
Film actors reach a certain level, but they don't get beyond it unless they work in the theater.
I moved to LA and decided to do films and television, mainly because the theater in New York is totally dead.
My goal was not to be famous or rich but to be good at what I did. And that required going to New York and studying and working in the theater.
I'm obviously very keen on the theater and I think it's inevitable that some of the orchestral and chamber pieces have got dramatic elements which might even suggest an unspecified dramatic plot of some kind or other, even though it's not in my mind at the time.
Peter Maxwell Davies
I read and watch movies. I can't go to the movie theater much anymore, though, because I get recognized. It's worse sometimes if I wear a costume and try not to get recognized. I watch most of my films on airplanes.
I'm from the theater. I never wanted to be a star.
I do like to go to movies. I like to be in the theater. I like the event of it.
That's one of the things about theater vs. film - with theater, actors have a little more control, and one of the disappointing things about films is that once you're done shooting, anything can happen, you know?
I knew there was something special about the theater for me something beyond the regular reality, something that I could get into and transcend and become something other than myself.
Thank God for the theater.
I was going to middle school in Berkley, and I did not fit in at all. Like a lot of kids, I found theater to be a good place for me.
As an actor, my background is in the theater and I feel that my strong suit is period work, but I actually didn't do much of it at all, until the last three or four years. I'm loving it!
