Intermission Quotations

Make your life a mission - not an intermission.
Arnold H. Glasow

I just am committed wholeheartedly to theatre with no intermission.
Lady Gaga

I had a high school girlfriend whose mother gave us theater tickets, so I saw the second night performance of 'A Streetcar Named Desire.' My girl and I could not get up during intermission, we were so stunned. To this day it's the only thing I've seen on stage that's 100 percent real and 100 percent poetic simultaneously.
Mike Nichols

Pleasure is nothing else but the intermission of pain.
John Selden

I had never done a 90-minute play with no intermission, so it is a bit like you get onto the train and you don't get off until it's over - and it's over very quickly, so don't miss a moment of it. That experience is very rare and specific so don't miss a minute, because there aren't very many minutes of it.
Lily Rabe
