Theatre Quotations

All the best performers bring to their role something more, something different than what the author put on paper. That's what makes theatre live. That's why it persists.
Stephen Sondheim

Good teaching is one-fourth preparation and three-fourths pure theatre.
Gail Godwin

A good film is when the price of the dinner, the theatre admission and the babysitter were worth it.
Alfred Hitchcock

Sometimes, you just have to clear your head and get out to see other things. It is very important to be nourished. I love to go to museums and galleries, I like to see theatre, film, dance - anything creative. It doesn't promise you inspiration, but it nourishes your creative soul, and that's good.
Marc Jacobs

The word theatre comes from the Greeks. It means the seeing place. It is the place people come to see the truth about life and the social situation.
Stella Adler
