David Alan Grier

I love all of the arts. I love motion pictures. I love stage. I love theater.
I absolutely want to have a career where you make'em laugh and make'em cry. It's all theater.

The oldest form of theater is the dinner table. It's got five or six people, new show every night, same players. Good ensemble; the people have worked together a lot.

Theater in New York is nearer to the street. In London, you have to go deep into the building, usually, to reach the place where theater happens. On Broadway, only the fire doors separate you from the sidewalk, and you're lucky if the sound of a police car doesn't rip the envelope twice a night.
When I was a teenager, I began to settle into school because I'd discovered the extracurricular activities that interested me: music and theater.

In this theater of man's life, it is reserved only for God and angels to be lookers-on.
I was about 14 when I started with a theater group; it was like a stage group on the weekends alongside school. And it was run by a group of guys who'd been to drama school themselves in London. So they introduced us to techniques that they'd learn about, and they kind of informed us about improvisation and screenwriting and all of that stuff.
