I'm a New York girl. I come out of New York theater.
Trust me, there's not one night a week I'm not in a theater somewhere. I adore theater, and I go out with friends, so I do have some nights off.
I love all of the arts. I love motion pictures. I love stage. I love theater.
So long as there is one pretty girl left on the stage, the professional undertakers may hold up their burial of the theater.
George Jean Nathan
Sheer flattery got me into the theater. Flattery always works with me, particularly the flattery of women.
I live halfway between reality and theater at all times. And I was born this way.
The theater needs continual reminders that there is nothing more debasing than the work of those who do well what is not worth doing at all.
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.
Michael J. Fox
Theater is, of course, a reflection of life. Maybe we have to improve life before we can hope to improve theater.
William Ralph Inge
In the theater there is often a tension, almost a contradiction, between the way real people would think and behave, and a kind of imposed dramaticness.
When I was a teenager, I began to settle into school because I'd discovered the extracurricular activities that interested me: music and theater.
I didn't do improv in college, I never performed, I didn't do theater either. I was in student government, I was a history major.
It never occurred to me that I was a leading man until I was 19 years old. I had been acting since I was 10, so that's nine years and 30 or 40 plays, in school and summer stock, professional theater, too.
I'm a very shy person, and I never tried to do theater. I've been asked many, many times by the most incredible authors in America to do theater. And I always said no, not knowing what it is to be on the stage and to do theater.
I love to go to a regular movie theater, especially when the movie is a big crowd-pleaser. It's much better watching a movie with 500 people making noise than with just a dozen.
Does art have a future? Performance genres like opera, theater, music and dance are thriving all over the world, but the visual arts have been in slow decline for nearly 40 years. No major figure of profound influence has emerged in painting or sculpture since the waning of Pop Art and the birth of Minimalism in the early 1970s.
I'm not really looking for theater work. But if somebody approaches me with enthusiasm, I might respond.
I believe that in a great city, or even in a small city or a village, a great theater is the outward and visible sign of an inward and probable culture.
The movie theater is never going away. If that was a case why are there still restaurants? People still have kitchens in their home!
Football games are on TV, and it doesn't affect stadium attendance at all. It's the same with movies. People who really love movies and like to go out on a Saturday night will go to the movie theater.
And then it was like, wait, you can go to college and study theater? And act in plays? This is almost a racket, you know. And then when the opportunity came along to do it professionally, I thought I'd won the lottery.
If you really love films, and you really want to get the full impact, there's a huge difference between watching something on a small screen with a mediocre sound system and watching it on a giant screen in a giant theater with a huge beautiful sound system. I mean, the difference is electric.
Stand-up is the only thing in which you actually write it, act it and direct it simultaneously, so it's actually a great theater exercise.
Boxing has become America's tragic theater.
Joyce Carol Oates
