Bob, you do not know what they're gonna do. Some people are so disturbed by that dance, they can't look at it.
I believe in things that move people, if the audience isn't deeply caught up and moved to either laughter or tears then I don't think it is theater.
I know people like spectacle, but I'm interested in moving people.
People who call themselves actors and can't ever get work; they do need to get another profession.
I like time off because I also have a life outside of theater.
All of the generations go to what is chic for them, and theater seems to be an older generation's art form.
It is so important to get respect for what you do and at the same time give it.
I mean, there are times when you aren't working, but still believe that work will come.
But today I felt different, today I forgot how long it takes to get into the skin of a character and I remembered it, because today I actually got into that skin and it felt so different.
In theater, the wellspring of the character comes from the doing of it, like a trial by fire, but in front of an audience.
You can't just trust to luck; you have to really listen to what that character is telling you.
I think in small towns like this one, whether you're a man or a woman, you basically do what there is to do.
Getting work in theater has always been sort of cyclical.
I find that there are few reviews that extol women as wonderful artists.
At this point the theater America is in such a precarious place.
