The theatre was created to tell people the truth about life and the social situation.
It’s a scary thing going into the workforce with a $50,000 debt and you’ve been trained as a classical theatre actor. There’s always a depression in the theatre.
You take a plug and put it in a socket, and that’s what the theatre is-it lights up right away. You speak, and they respond immediately.
I get bored at the theatre a lot because I notice that there’s not always a connection between the actors. They may be technically proficient, but they’re not surprising each other. I’m thrilled by actors who make choices that are surprising.
I hate that people think going to the theatre is a special occasion. I wish people would treat it as normally as going to the cinema.
