Theatre Quotations

Great theatre is about challenging how we think and encouraging us to fantasize about a world we aspire to.
Willem Dafoe

Every age has its storytelling form, and video gaming is a huge part of our culture. You can ignore or embrace video games and imbue them with the best artistic quality. People are enthralled with video games in the same way as other people love the cinema or theatre.
Andy Serkis

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

Free speech means the right to shout 'theatre' in a crowded fire.
Abbie Hoffman
