Great Lines About Theater
"The life of the arts, far from being an interruption, a distraction, in the life of a nation, is close to the center of a nation's purpose -- and is a test of the quality of a nation's civilization."
~John F, Kennedy
"The most effective moments in the theatre are those that appeal to basic and commonplace emotions--love of woman, love of home, love of country, love of right, anger, jealousy, revenge, ambition, lust, and treachery."
~ Clayton Hamilton
~ Scott Nilsson
“You need three things in the theater - the play, the actors and the audience, - and each must give something”
"The stage is not merely the meeting place of all the arts, but is also the return of art to life."
"If you really want to help the American theater, don't be an actress, dahling. Be an audience."
