Theater quotes
Theater
I'm the end of the line; absurd and appalling as it may seem, serious New York theater has died in my lifetime.

- Miller, Arthur
Theatergoing is a communal act, movie going a solitary one.

- Brustein, Robert
You can be a little bit darker and rougher on the stage, partly because when you're in the theater, people have come to see you, and so they kind of know what they're in for. In television, you are sort of sneaking into people's homes. So, I think you can be a little bit darker on stage.

- Tina Fey
A dramatist is one who believes that the pure event, an action involving human beings, is more arresting than any comment that can be made upon it.

- Wilder, Thornton
For my part, I confess I seldom listen to the players: one has so much to do, in looking about and finding out one's acquaintance, that, really, one has no time to mind the stage. One merely comes to meet one's friends, and show that one's alive.

- Burney, Fanny
I want to give the audience a hint of a scene. No more than that. Give them too much and they won't contribute anything themselves. Give them just a suggestion and you get them working with you. That's what gives the theater meaning: when it becomes a social act.

- Welles, Orson
Theater people are always pining and agonizing because they're afraid that they'll be forgotten. And in America they're quite right. They will be.

- Mille, Agnes De
In this theater of man's life, it is reserved only for God and angels to be lookers-on.

- Pythagoras
Farce is tragedy played at a thousand revolutions per minute.

- Mortimer, John
The theatre is supremely fitted to say: Behold! These things are. Yet most dramatists employ it to say: This moral truth can be learned from beholding this action.

- Wilder, Thornton
I just love, I love, I love movies.

- Dern, Laura
The theater, which is in no thing, but makes use of everything -- gestures, sounds, words, screams, light, darkness -- rediscovers itself at precisely the point where the mind requires a language to express its manifestations. To break through language in order to touch life is to create or recreate the theatre.

- Artaud, Antonin
Drama assumes an order. If only so that it might have -- by disrupting that order -- a way of surprising.

- Havel, Vaclav
A true priest is aware of the presence of the altar during every moment that he is conducting a service. It is exactly the same way that a true artist should react to the stage all the time he is in the theater. An actor who is incapable of this feeling will never be a true artist.

- Stanislavisky, Konstantin
To save the theatre, the theatre must be destroyed, the actors and actresses must all die of the plague. They poison the air, they make art impossible. It is not drama that they play, but pieces for the theatre. We should return to the Greeks, play in the open air; the drama dies of stalls and boxes and evening dress, and people who come to digest their dinner.

- Duse, Eleanor
We need a type of theatre which not only releases the feelings, insights and impulses possible within the particular historical field of human relations in which the action takes place, but employs and encourages those thoughts and feelings which help transform the field itself.

- Brecht, Bertolt
No more duty can be urged upon those who are entering the great theater of life than simple loyalty to their best convictions.

- Chapin, Edwin Hubbel
Tennis is more than just a sport. It's an art, like the ballet. Or like a performance in the theater. When I step on the court I feel like Anna Pavlova. Or like Adelina Patti. Or even like Sarah Bernhardt. I see the footlights in front of me. I hear the whisperings of the audience. I feel an icy shudder. Win or die! Now or never! It's the crisis of my life.

- Tilden, Bill
Good drama must be drastic.

- Schlegel, Friedrich
Promises are like crying babies in a theater, they should be carried out at once.

- Peale, Norman Vincent
