Theatre Quotations

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

Orson Welles

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

The good die young but not always. The wicked prevail but not consistently. I am confused by life, and I feel safe within the confines of the theatre.
Helen Hayes

Also, if you want to reach people, theatre is not always the best way to do it.
