I'm looking for one of two things and sometimes they dovetail: I'm looking to go into a theatre and see a certain kind of show. And if it's not there, I'd like to do it myself so it would be there. -Hal Price

He's a TV producer, a theatrical impresario, and he wants to be treated as Mr. Windsor but when the going gets rough he wants to be treated like a member of the Royal Family. -Andrew Morton

I am not a demon. I am a lizard, a shark, a heat-seeking panther. I want to be Bob Denver on acid playing the accordion. -Nicolas Cage

Performance art can involve the audience with taste, smell and sounds not available with electronic media and not practical with conventional theater. This is due to the usually small audience. -Jack Bowman

All good performance pieces have some philosophical validity. That's the difference between mere theater and performance art. -Jack Bowman

We talk about theatre museums filled with old costumes and things. What we also need is a theatre museum of the old routines on videotape. We are only the custodians of those techniques, and they should be preserved. -Jim Dale

A career in the theatre demands so much commitment. -Jim Dale

The entrance into Jerusalem has all the elements of the theatre of the absurd: the poor king; truth comes riding on a donkey; symbolic actions – even parading without a permit! -David Kirk

We are suffocated by writers who want to enlighten us with their truths. For me, the theatre is beautiful because it is a secret, and secrets seduce us, we all want to share secrets. -Howard Barker

I am so far as I am aware not at all influenced by dramatists, expect for Shakespeare, who I have to say, it is impossible not to be influenced by if you hold language to be the major element of theatre. -Howard Barker

When I write, I am not giving a lecture, I am speculating on behavior. Sometimes this is dangerous, but it should be. As I say often, theatre is a dark place and we should keep the light out of it. -Howard Barker

I submit all my plays to the National Theatre for rejection. To assure myself I am seeing clearly. -Howard Barker

If we allow the consideration of heathen morality and heathen religion to absolve us from the duty of preaching the gospel we are really deposing Christ from His throne in our own souls. -Roland Allen

This is very clever. They have created a system to cheat. -Charles Davenport

With acting, it was really more of a general kind of experience of really just loving being in the theater. -Marisa Tomei

I am really not of the school of naturalism. I like style, and you can use more style in theater than in film roles. I love to sink my teeth into a part. -Marisa Tomei

I have so much respect for people in the theater. You can't do 10 or 15 takes. It's all live. It's like life in motion. -Sean Combs

I was as happy doing theater in New York for little or no money as I am now doing television for more money. The happiness, I guess, comes out of it being a good job. The success has to do with the fact that it's a good job that will continue. -David Hyde Pierce

Independence I have long considered as the grand blessing of life, the basis of every virtue; and independence I will ever secure by contracting my wants, though I were to live on a barren heath. -Mary Wollstonecraft

I've directed enough in the theatre and a couple of films to know that – to feel fairly secure that if I find a story that I really like I can probably get it done somewhat. -Gary Sinise

I started a theater called Steppenwolf. We've been very supportive of the veterans there. -Gary Sinise

Mere heathen morality, and not Jesus Christ, is preached in most of our churches. -George Whitefield

I had such extraordinary breaks from the moment I entered the theater. -Dorothy McGuire

Theater dates very quickly. -Fiona Shaw

There was no professional theater in Cork, but still I did a lot of performing. -Fiona Shaw

Theater is dangerously open to repetition. It's exciting when you hit on a new way. -Fiona Shaw

I take the theater seriously in that I loathe it, I'm bored by it. -Fiona Shaw

I'd also like to do a play. I've never done theater, and constantly changing and refining a performance is something I'd like to do, even though it may sound like work to some people – and it probably is work. -Nastassja Kinski

To me, theater is the mecca; if you really love to act, that's where it's the most fun, by a long shot. -Scott Caan

I decided at age 9, but I was reinforced at age 13 when a teacher told me I had talent. I can't say she really motivated me because I already knew. I knew I had talent. I went to the Jewish community theater and got in plays there. Then I went for the movies.' -Richard Dreyfuss

We don't make movies for critics. I've done four movies; there's millions upon millions upon millions of people who've paid to see them. Somebody likes them. My greatest joy is to sit anonymously in a dark theater and watch it with an audience, a paying audience. -Michael Bay

I realize I'm a very lucky man. I love what I do, I love films, TV and theater, and the fact that I'm able to make a living at it staggers me. -Eric Stoltz

I never thought of myself in comedy at all… I loved going to the theatre and seeing people wearing beautiful clothes come down the staircase and start to dance. -Imogene Coca

Because of the power of television, I was visible to everybody all over the world. But there are many things in the theater that are more fulfilling and that I look forward to doing more. But really, I love it all: theater, film, television. -Charlotte Rae

I need to go someplace faraway that doesn't have telephones and doesn't have a record player and doesn't have movie theaters and people walking down the street in order to not do anything. -Will Oldham

I'm trying to bring a new generation into the musical theater and to create a new audience. -Jerry Herman

I don't want the kind of theater that I love and grew up seeing to die out. -Jerry Herman

Well, when I think of steroids I think of an image. You have the advantage over someone, which is a form of cheating. I guess it wouldn't be right unless it was legal for everybody. Reason it's not legal for everybody is because it can hurt people seriously. -Evander Holyfield

Every week it's another opportunity to really make that work and figure out how to make it work better. And I love that it's like theater, too, and the audience, and it's so short. It's only 20 minutes. It's like a haiku or something. -Joan Cusack

I'm working on a snow scene right now, and it's summer. It's hot, and I will get chilly. I'll have to turn on the heat. My wife walks in, and it's 95 degrees in the studio. I know it's nutty, but it's a projection you have where you step into the painting. -Thomas Kinkade

In the theater, it's about taking time in a musical segment, a pause in a musical way and then moving on. -Marcia Gay Harden

In theater, you have a rehearsal period and you know just who to be. -Marcia Gay Harden

Actors get pigeonholed very quickly, particularly movie actors. In the theater, one is more used to casting people against type and trusting that their talent and skill will get them through. -Sam Mendes

I think movies are a director's medium in the end. Theater is the actor's medium. Theater is fast, and enjoyable, and truly rewarding. I believe in great live performance. -Sam Mendes

Now I'm back home, living in London, running my theater. I just want to enjoy all that. -Sam Mendes

Words can sometimes be used to confuse, but it's up to the practitioners of the study of language to apply them for good and not for evil. It is just like fire; fire can heat your house or burn it down. -Frank Luntz

I have never seen a game's graphics look so sharp and clean. The sound design for the game is also unique on the Xbox. The memory on this system allowed us to provide the user with 5.1 Dolby surround sound for home theatre owners. -Don Bluth

Cheating on a quiz show? That's sort of like plagiarizing a comic strip. -Paul Scofield

I think every actor should go back and do theater periodically. -Chad Lowe

I believe that the story is the most important element of any medium whether it's theater, film, TV. -Chad Lowe

Musical theatre is something I'm familiar with, I've been doing that. -David Naughton

Whether it was working on theatre sets or stage lighting, I didn't realize most all of the skills I was exposed to were going to come in handy later on when I became a designer. -Douglas Wilson

Black Books adheres to a more old fashioned, traditional sitcom format, which I think works, because in its own way, it's quite theatrical. -Dylan Moran

Now, when I started my theater, the modus operandi was having the actors stare right into the audience. -Richard Foreman

I'm there to make a kind of theatrical music that is desperately missing in my life. And if other people don't like it, I'm very unhappy, but I can't do anything about that. -Richard Foreman

If I wasn't in the theater, I would be a hermit. -Richard Foreman

As I told you, from the time I was fifteen, I thought the theater was too much involved with actors trying to make the audience love them, being over emotional. -Richard Foreman

Inside I never said I wanted to do theatre or be an actor. -Sebastian Bach

Console game publishing has become more like theatrical release film-making and it is very hard if you are not one of the major publishers, and even for them it is hard unless they are working with major game brands. -Trip Hawkins

As a working actor, all I want to do is work. That's it. It's terrifying when you don't work. It's very hard when you don't work. There have been times when I've been out of work for like six months. I feel theatre to me is like manna. -Sandra Oh

Theatre sports is the best improv training period. -Wayne Brady

There is a lot of interest in the arts, music, theatre, filmmaking, engineering, architecture and software design. I think we have now transitioned the modern-day version of the entrepreneur into the creative economy. -John Baldacci

People know that they're going to see something which is entertaining but challenging as well because of the form it's in. It's dance theatre and it requires you to use your imagination – it's not straight forward. -Matthew Bourne

First of all, my persuasion is what really breeds violence is political differences. But because religion serves as the soul of community, it gets drawn into the fracas and turns up the heat. -Huston Smith

The first perk of theater is the girls. -James Spader

I really would rather have gone to New York, since all my training had been in theater, but I didn't have the guts to go there alone. I knew only one person in New York, and that was a man. What I needed was a woman. That's the way Southern girls thought. -Louise Fletcher

Live television drama was like live theater, because you moved without thinking about the camera. It followed you around. In film you have to be more aware of what the camera is doing. -Louise Fletcher

I am musical and I enjoy theatre, but I never wanted to just do theatre. I always wanted to go into film. I love film. I loved growing up in the theatre, but I always wanted to do film all along. But, I still pursue music separately. -Sabrina Lloyd

I come from a traditional theater background. -Mark Ruffalo

Do theater. Because you'll develop a craft that you'll always have. It'll give you a chance to really learn how to act and you won't go into the world with a few measly tricks that will only carry you so far. -Mark Ruffalo

Actually, my favourite roles have been in theatre, but on TV, my faves were Slap Maxwell and Larry Sanders. -Megan Gallagher

My dream is to eventually open a children's theatre. -Moira Kelly

Thirty years ago dinner theatre used to be much more of a going concern than it is now. -Ted Shackelford

Theater to me is acting but it's more real on film. -Ted Shackelford

With my background, I came out of the theater. -Joe Morton

I love doing movies but I loved doing theatre just as much. -Joe Morton

Film and television is just a different technique in terms of how to approach the camera but basically the job is the same; but what you learn as a craft in theater, you can then learn to translate that into any mediums. -Joe Morton

I am extraordinarily lucky, I was born in a family of strong moral values, and in my life I was able to do what I liked best: debuts, great theatres, but above all, inner and deep satisfaction. -Jose Carreras

I spent 10 years in New York doing theater. -Kristen Johnston

By obtaining a sense of its place in the unfolding drama of life, set in an ecological theatre, so we can understand why it has become one of the leading players. -Simon Conway Morris

I'm definitely nervous and excited. I feel like I've been playing off-Broadway, not to say that Boston doesn't have a great theatre district or great theatre, but it's not going to Broadway; it's just a different city. -Todd English

Fundamentally, whether directing in the theatre or a film, you have to be a good storyteller, regardless of the form. The thing I had to work hardest at was thinking in shots. -John Crowley

Like Afghanistan before it, Iraq is only one theater in a regional war. We were attacked by a network of terrorist organizations supported by several countries, of whom the most important were Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Saudi Arabia. -Michael Ledeen

I have a cheat-sheet for each one of my characters about their personality, the way they look, etc. So there is no possible way that I could have writer's block. -R. L. Stine

There's nothing like a good cheating song to make me want to run home to be with my wife. -Steven Curtis Chapman

Well I'm not much of a singer. But it's been a really nice time to do film, television, theater and have it all happening at once. That wasn't planned but it just happens. -Peter Krause

NC-17 means that you get it in like 3 theaters. They won't run the spots on MTV, won't run the advertising. It's the kiss of death so there was really no other choice. -Rob Zombie

I remember, especially like when I was in high school, going to see like Dawn of the Dead and it was like mayhem in the theater and you could barely even watch the movie. It was so fun. -Rob Zombie

My dad had a movie theater so I was there every night. -Brion James

When I entered college, I wasn't sure what I was going to do. My advisor happened to be from the theater department, and he encouraged me to take some classes there, which I did. -David Selby

It's really hard to say how long the show will last and will continue. I hope it lasts for a very long time. As long as kids watch it, anyway. But beyond this, sure, I would love to be doing film. I'd love to be doing more theater and perhaps even writing. -Steve Burns

I think film likes me better than the theatre does for some reason. -Miranda Otto

I want to do theater and I am looking forward to doing more Television and Movies. I also want to direct some plays in theater workshops for people with disabilities. -Chris Burke

I love making people laugh. It's an addiction and it's probably dysfunctional, but I am addicted to it and there's no greater pleasure for me than sitting in a theater and feeling a lot of people losing control of themselves. -Jay Roach

This empire, unlike any other in the history of the world, has been built primarily through economic manipulation, through cheating, through fraud, through seducing people into our way of life, through the economic hit men. I was very much a part of that. -John Perkins

I had a brief theater background and loved the backstage world there's more backstage work in television, so I saw a job advertised and applied, and got it. That was back in 1977, when getting jobs was easy. -Lee Child

Fire is the origin of stone. By working the stone with heat, I am returning it to its source. -Andy Goldsworthy

I soon realised that what had happened on a small scale cannot necessarily be repeated on a larger scale. The stones were so big that the amount of heat required was prohibitively expensive and wasteful. -Andy Goldsworthy

I'm cautious about using fire. It can become theatrical. I am interested in the heat, not the flames. -Andy Goldsworthy

The difference between a theatre with and without an audience is enormous. There is a palpable, critical energy created by the presence of the audience. -Andy Goldsworthy

I grew up in Washington, D.C. But also loving the theater. -Frank Rich

I'm always struck by the kids who turn up in New York and LA, and places in between. Chicago. Wanting to do theater, wanting to do independent film. Wanting to break into television or radio. -Frank Rich

I am drawn to writing and directing as it is most like the feeling I had when I was a teenager with my puppet theatre. You are more in control of everything and involved in every aspect of production, so more challenged and fulfilled. -Richard E. Grant

It's exciting to do something like this because usually what happens in theater is that, after the first or second reading of a play, it falls apart completely and the rehearsal process is such that you begin to pick up the pieces and put it back together again. -Treat Williams

The wonderful thing about Food for Thought is that it lets you keep your hand in theater and be in front of a live audience without a commitment of six months, or even three months. -Treat Williams

Also, if you're in a TV show that does turn out to be very successful, you then can do whatever you want to do in theater for a very long time. -Treat Williams

I jump at any chance to go back into theater. -Taye Diggs

Yes, it is a rehearsed show, yes, it was analogy of going to see a play at the theatre, where everything has to be in place and whole things, everything being works, all works together to get the best effect you know it's more like an actor learning a part. -John Deacon

If you look at the timing of many of the Greek dramas from the theatrical point of view, it's all off, and I think the reason for that is that music played a very important part. -John Eaton

I'm trying to do the kind of projects that I want to see in the theatre. -Nicholas Lea

This led to the discovery that long chain fatty acids would remarkably stabilize serum albumin to heat denaturation, and would even reverse the denaturation by heat or concentrated urea solutions. -Paul D. Boyer

My childhood home backed onto wheat and cotton fields. -Robert B. Laughlin

I had an interest, for as long as I could remember, in theater. -Antoinette Perry

When I owned the theater, I had the Glen Miller Orchestra. I had 20 girls singing and dancing. I had a cast of characters. It was a big group production, as well as ushers, ticket takers. -Bobby Vinton

What's even more unsettling is the way these people hide what they're doing from the public. They strip the labels off miracle wheat when they ship it, for instance, and say, 'Watch out. Don't plant too much and don't depend on it too much.' -David R. Brower

I get to the theatre in plenty of time; I prepare my shoes in advance; I eat and drink the right things at the right time. The rest you have to leave to luck! -Deborah Bull

My first thought was always a cigarette. It still is, but I haven't cheated. -Frederik Pohl

I feel that David took a risk with me. I have a sense that by starting off in the theatre and going off to do films you are seen to sell out in some way. I don't hold truck with that, but you can't stop people from feeling it. -Julia Ormond

My husband came up to Hot Rocks to check up on me, why is still unknown to me because if I was to cheat on him it wouldn't be in a neighborhood bar where he knows I am. -Kim Mathers

As soon as I read that, it clicked: that's my theater of war. It was exciting to think that I could write about World War Two from a totally new place. -Michael Chabon

That was a surprise. I just had wished that Wil Wheaton was there. He was missing from the last show and it would have been nice if everyone could have been there. -Denise Crosby

Now a movie goes out to two, three thousand theaters and by Friday night at 10 o'clock they know if you are in or out. That desperate competition is, I think, horrendous. It's awful. -Mark Rydell

They would have been very let down if they had to leave the theater and he had missed. He would feel badly. Everyone would feel badly. But he never let them down. -James Randi

We can guess that the unacceptable conduct of the soldiers at Abu Ghraib resulted in part from the dangerous state of affairs on the ground in a theater of war. -John Yoo

I'm a perfectionist. I'm not going to cheat the people. -Dick Dale

A few years later, my Uncle David took me to the Earle Theatre to hear Duke Ellington. -David Amram

Normally our season is seven weeks in the Drama Theatre and four weeks in the Opera Theater. -Graeme Murphy

My family is very theatrical. -Debra Wilson

I got into theatre very early, so yes I was surrounded by gay people quite early and frequently. -Judith Light

I happen to love working in cinema, but the theater is always there… you know, and I would never shut the door on it. Even though it's been quite a bit of time since I've done a play, last one was in New York. -Michael York

Every time I listened to Lux Radio Theatre, I wanted to vomit. -Dick York

I joined Tommy Dorsey at the Paramount Theater in New York as a singer. I replaced Frank Sinatra. -Ken Curtis

I am both proud and honored to be on the Board of Directors for the Texas Ballet Theater. -Janine Turner

My college degree was in theater. But the real reason, if I have any success in that milieu, so to speak, is because I spent a lot of years directing, I spent a lot of years behind the camera. -Alton Brown

My first book is really about heat. That book, for me, was an exploration of heat as ingredient. Why we don't talk about heat as an ingredient, I don't quite understand, because it is the common ingredient to all cooking processes. -Alton Brown

Recipe writers hate to write about heat. They despise it. Because there aren't proper words for communicating what should be done with it. -Alton Brown

Last year, I made a refrigerator in my basement. And I needed to because I needed to figure how – you know there is no such thing as 'cold.' There is only less heat. -Alton Brown

We didn't have a drill so he would burn the holes through the wood with a metal rod that he heated up in a fire. Can you imagine an ordinary crew doing that? -Marc Singer

My parents certainly didn't have anything to do with the theater. I'm some kind of accident. -Alan Rickman

You learn more discipline in the theatre than you do in movies or TV. You're on stage every night and you have to sustain your energy level tor several hours. -Blythe Danner

My favorite venues are the 2,000 seat theaters, like the Warfield. If there was a Warfield in every city, I would play it. That's all I would do. I love venues like that. -Les Claypool

Theaters are great. They're designed to sound good, not for basketball. -Les Claypool

So I've done my fair share of theater. I have also been very fortunate in that I've been able to come to New York two or three times a year just to see as many shows as possible. I think the live theater culture here is incredible. -Neil Patrick Harris

Once you get into your stride, the camera becomes like another person in the room. It's like being in a very small theatre where there is no getting away with anything because the audience is centimetres away from you. -Saffron Burrows

My mother is an actress, and she used to drag me from theater to theater and reading to reading. -Alicia Keys

But, you see, the theatre is not always art in America. -Beatrice Wood

I grew up in Jackson, Mississippi, really in suburbia, so my mother was in community theatre plays. -Beth Henley

I tried to start a theatre in LA and failed miserably, but I was probably not meant to raise money. -Beth Henley

Then I went off to Southern Methodist University in Dallas. They had a really wonderful theatre department. -Beth Henley

At the turn of the century theatre does not have to be prescriptive. -Edward Bond

First there was the theatre of people and animals, then of people and the devil. Now we need the theatre of people and people. -Edward Bond

I don't think it's the job of theatre at the moment to provide political propaganda; that would be simplistic. We have to explore our situation further before we will understand it. -Edward Bond

I think there is no world without theatre. -Edward Bond

In the end I think theatre has only one subject: justice. -Edward Bond

Now, drama is quite useful at helping us to understand what our position is and, conversely, we might then understand why our theatre is being destroyed. -Edward Bond

The theatre, our theatre, comes from the Greeks. -Edward Bond

I think the same way about theatre, you go out there and you are creating a world for a moment that can actually have a real impact on people, present some kind of story that gives you something to think about when you walk away, feeling enriched – if it works out well. -Jeffrey Jones

I've gotten to go wonderful places, meet interesting and intelligent people, and I started of course in the theatre and continue to work in the theatre where there is some intelligence involved in it. -Jeffrey Jones

This outfit called Los Angeles Theatre Works does readings of plays. -Jeffrey Jones

Another night, I dreamed I saw my father sweeping out the barn floor clean, and would not suffer the wheat to be brought in the barn. He appeared to me to be in anger. -Joanna Southcott

Steroids are for guys who want to cheat opponents. -Lawrence Taylor

In fact, one was so booked out we went from March and were to go till November, but the pantomime was booked so they transferred the show to the Prince of Wales Theatre because it was so packed out, and it ran on from there. -Norman Wisdom

Serial killers are everywhere! Well, perhaps not in our neighborhood, but on our television screens, at the movie theatres, and in rows and rows of books at our local Borders or Barnes and Noble Booksellers. -Pat Brown

Here we grow the flax and grain; here we raise the meat they eat, and the wool to keep them warm; we cut trees to build their houses and firewood to heat their stoves. -Ernest Poole

I love using gas grills because they are easier to heat and it's much easier to control the flames with a gas grill than with a charcoal fire. Grilling is not just about lighting a fire. -Bobby Flay

Two packed houses. I guess the theater sat 2,700 people every night so it was an amazing experience. -Blair Underwood

The hope is they would like to bring it to Broadway next year, so we'll see that's to come in the end of the finance year and everybody else and also real estate and what theaters are available at the time but I would like to come back with it. -Blair Underwood

When I doing dinner theater in high school, I was talking to a woman who had been in the business for a while and I said I want to act, that's all I want to do with my life and she said if you're serious then you need to hone every discipline you can. -Blair Underwood

I'm doing 5000 seat theaters and audiences are going nuts, it's fantastic and it makes me very happy. I'm dirty, but not like this; I just do comedy that I find funny. I'm working on a new tv show for cable and it's not set up yet. -Bob Saget

They were totally supportive, always saw everything I did. One of the thrills of my life was when they went to the theater to see something that I wasn't in. It opened doors for them that otherwise would have been totally closed. -Derek Jacobi

Sir Larry could be very strict and a disciplinarian, too. He had many faces; he wore many hats. But, ultimately, he loved the theater and he loved actors. -Derek Jacobi

Cary Grant was wonderful to work with on stage. He would move downstage, so that as he looked at me the audience had to look at me, too. He knew a lot about the theater and how to move around. He was very secure. -Fay Wray

I just love the hours of the theatre, I love the way it operates. I always say that when you're doing a play it's like getting a shot of B12, and when you do television for a long series you need a shot of B12. -Gavin MacLeod

This is a group effort. This is group theatre. This is no big star turn. You could do things with it to do that but it would just be out of kilter. This is one reason I like this play. This is a unit. -Gavin MacLeod

All TV can do is capture the spirit of a book because the medium is so utterly different. But I'm very grateful for the readers that Masterpiece Theatre has undoubtedly brought me. -Joanna Trollope

I think it's one of my favourite theatres ever, so quirky and wonderful and steeped in history. The space is wonderful and the acoustics are brilliant. -Louise Jameson

Since we started, Chris and I had theatrical ambitions. -Neil Tennant

When we did concerts, we wanted them to be theatrical events – collaborations with designers, choreographers, and directors – because we thought traditional rock concerts were boring. -Neil Tennant

We thought it would be great to see if you could put pop music back into musical theater. -Neil Tennant

At one time musical theater, particularly in the '40s and '50s, was a big source of pop songs. That's how musical theater started, really – it was just a way of linking several pop songs for the stage. -Neil Tennant

I like going to New York. I like the galleries and the theatre and the restaurants and bars and music. I think that city is more alive than Los Angeles. -Sara Gilbert

There are a few directors around who I have some excitement about spending my $7 at the theatre watching their movies. -Sean Penn

Many of the Universities have very good Theatre Departments these days. -Tony Randall

Everyone town of 100,000 in the United States should have a Classical Theater supported by the town, or the state of the county, or the Federal Government, as they have in every civilized country. -Tony Randall

I never achieved my first goal in the National Actors Theatre, which is to have a permanent Acting Company. -Tony Randall

I would have started the National Actors Theatre 30 years earlier. -Tony Randall

The real thing is, you should be seeing these plays in the Theatre. That's what they were written for. That's where the enjoyment is. Studying them is no enjoyment whatsoever. -Tony Randall

No, I knew when I was doing theater in New York that this was what I was supposed to be doing. -Vincent D'Onofrio

I'd like to be for cinema what Shakespeare was for theatre, Marx for politics and Freud for psychology: someone after whom nothing is as it used to be. -Rainer Werner Fassbinder

I came out of repertory theater, where I worked 50 weeks a year, and I loved working with the people. -Rene Auberjonois

At this point we've answered about every question you could possibly imagine about Deep Space Nine, so we do this thing called Theatrical Jazz, where we do a show of bits and pieces of things from plays and literature, poetry… stuff that we like. It's fun. -Rene Auberjonois

And so I've always been fascinated by the technical end of theater, and a lot of my closest friends are not actors, but in the other end of the business. -Rene Auberjonois

If I have to, I'll go and direct theater and talk till the cows come home. -Ridley Scott

Working on a film, you don't get time to develop rivalries, but the theatre is like a little village, and the differences between me, Lionel and Georgia grew. -Ron Moody

People wear shorts to the Broadway theater. There should be a law against that. -Stanley Tucci

We went to see all the shows. American musical theater and jazz were very big. -Carly Simon

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. -Estelle Parsons

In theater, the wellspring of the character comes from the doing of it, like a trial by fire, but in front of an audience. -Estelle Parsons

At this point the theater America is in such a precarious place. -Estelle Parsons

We all need to go to good theater; that is what I believe will save it. -Estelle Parsons

All of the generations go to what is chic for them, and theater seems to be an older generation's art form. -Estelle Parsons

Don't forget the prices are so high in theater; it isn't really where a young person can go on a date and buy two tickets and take someone out anymore. -Estelle Parsons

Getting work in theater has always been sort of cyclical. -Estelle Parsons

I like time off because I also have a life outside of theater. -Estelle Parsons

The corn law was intended to keep wheat at the price of 80s. the quarter; it is now under 40s. the quarter. -John Bright

I always wondered if you clone your wife and have the cloned wife on the moon and the real wife down here, would that be considered cheating? -Luis Guzman

Socrates didn't care to visit the theater, as a rule, except when the plays of Euripides (which some think, he himself had helped to compose), were performed. -Moses Mendelssohn

In spite of holidays when I was free to visit London theatres and explore the countryside, I spent four very miserable years as a colonial at an English school. -Patrick White

I had a feeling it was gonna work out because not only did I enjoy the music and hit it off with the guys, but I was into theatrical rock and was willing to wear makeup and do anything to make it. -Ace Frehley

I still think of myself as a stage actor. When I do film and television I try to implement what I was taught to do in theatre, to try to stretch into characters that are far from myself. -Tony Shalhoub

I was mostly interested in it as a theatrical film. Personally, I am not so interested in television, simply because I don't watch television myself. I'm into movies. -Bille August

I wanted to make Jerusalem as feature film. But we couldn't finance it only through theatrical release, we couldn't get all the money we needed. We had to get some money from television. So we said, ok, let's do it both ways. So we did it in four parts. -Bille August

He considers the theatrical version of Fanny and Alexander an amputated version of what his original film was, and he doesn't really like the shorter film. -Bille August

Well, I've always thought that my career was in England, really. I used to do more in the theatre, and I felt that I should be there. It's not far is it? It's amazing the way that special FX have taken a quantum leap in what they're capable of doing. -Albert Finney

We started combining the use of light and the use of theatrics and the use of as many art forms as possible, and it's still growing – that's the whole idea of it. -Alice Cooper

I've always found it not only easy, but enjoyable. It's necessary for us to reach out and I'm speaking for myself here. I certainly have a sense of responsibility to reach out to these people in the theatre who might look to someone like me for some guidance. -Harvey Keitel

Then I heard this genius teacher Stella Adler – I recommend you read anything you might find about her and if you have anyone interested in theatre, you get them one of her books. -Harvey Keitel

I think I'm a better actress for having friends and interests outside the theatre. I wouldn't want to live my life surrounded by other actors all the time. -Penelope Keith

I did a play called Throne of Straw when I was 11, at the Odyssey Theatre in Los Angeles. It became really clear to me at that point that I enjoyed acting more than any other experience I was having. -Kiefer Sutherland

You know, this isn't theatre like it used to be. -Katherine Dunham

We have a group of friends of the museum who try to raise, if they can, periodically something to help us. Of course, the main thing about a building like this is its upkeep. It needs central heating and it needs central air conditioning. -Katherine Dunham

What theatre started to look at much earlier than any other form was the internal operations of ordinary people, sometimes using mythic models in order to tell the story. -Pete Townshend

Early British pop was helped tremendously by the writing of Bob Dylan who had proved you could write about political and quite controversial subjects. Certainly what we did followed on from what was happening with the angry young men in the theatre. -Pete Townshend

What I took back, because of my exposure to the Jewish music of the 30s and the 40s in my upbringing with my father, was that kind of theatrical songwriting. It was always a part of my character. This desire to make people laugh. -Pete Townshend

What I'm trying to do is find either existing properties or come up with properties or angles or stories which will create music drama. It's my obsession and most of all I would like to remain working in theatre. I think it's very much alive. -Pete Townshend

For far too long, America has been without a comprehensive energy plan, and today consumers are paying the price – literally – at the pump and in their heating bills. -Chris Chocola

I started off in a small theatre performance company and worked my way into commercials. -Devon Sawa

The Cube can seem alive as it heats up in your hand. The fact that each face of the Cube is made of three layers of three blocks has an important meaning. -Erno Rubik

Soon I worked during twelve years in theater works of the prestigious Theatre National Populaire. It was the best time of my life, the most difficult, the most interesting, the most exciting. -Maurice Jarre

Hundreds and hundreds of the dead were so badly burned in the terrific heat generated by the bomb that it was not even possible to tell whether they were men or women, old or young. -Wilfred Burchett

Of thousands of others, nearer the centre of the explosion, there was no trace. They vanished. The theory in Hiroshima is that the atomic heat was so great that they burned instantly to ashes – except that there were no ashes. -Wilfred Burchett

The perfection in theater is that it's over the second it's done. -William Hurt

I guess we've had a very close relationship because I don't pretend to know about cinema and I think I do know a bit about theatre but he does, he respected that and so we really just had a collaboration which went completely like this. -Andrew Lloyd Webber

I knew nothing about film at all. I suppose the biggest surprise is all these things. In the theatre we sort of do, I might do two or three key interviews and that would be it. -Andrew Lloyd Webber

I think that the wonderful advantage we have in the film of being able to cast a girl as young as Emmy and which we couldn't do in the theatre of course because no girl of 16 or 17 could sing 8 shows a week, couldn't sing two. -Andrew Lloyd Webber

It must have been an extraordinary time. I guess the worrying thing about musical theatre to me, is if you look at the London season this year, mine is actually the only one to have come in. -Andrew Lloyd Webber

Well the least favourite question is the one that one's asked particularly about in Japan is what's the difference between theatre and cinema and I think, well, that's about eighty bucks. -Andrew Lloyd Webber

People come to the theatre to be excited and uplifted – I want to inspire my audience. -Edward Hall

Theatre is about people, not buildings. Incalculable damage has been done to the expert talent a company needs – from wardrobe to lighting technicians. -Edward Hall

I had one of the best days of my life. I spent the afternoon with my two kids and my ex-wife at Serendipity. Then I came to the theater, and you know, I think I did the play the best I've ever done it. -Gabriel Byrne

And it was out in the theaters in two weeks. This is not, 'We're going to develop twenty-five and maybe one's going to get made,' so the first three things I wrote got up on the screen and, good, bad or indifferent, I got to see them on their feet. -John Sayles

I did loads of student films and fringe theatre. I worked for free a lot. -Christopher Parker

That's one of the great things about DVD: In addition to reaching people who didn't catch the movie in theaters, you get to have this interaction of sorts. -Harold Ramis

We were tremendously encouraged by the testing of Analyze That. Audiences loved it. They were telling us that they liked it as much as the original. We recorded the laughs in the theater. -Harold Ramis

I really loved Twin Peaks. When I saw the two-hour pilot, they screened it in the big theatre. I said, I don't know what is going to happen. I'm in this and I don't understand it. This is never going to sell. Who's going to watch this thing? -Sherilyn Fenn

You say a line and you wait for them to laugh, then you say another line and you wait… It felt weird to me. But it's interesting and the energy is almost like theatre, I suppose, with all the people there. -Sherilyn Fenn

The story of my very first sale is the fact that I dreamed up a foolproof paper to cheat an insurance company out of several hundred thousand dollars. -Theodore Sturgeon

I started out to be a painter and was born into the theater. -Vincente Minnelli

I had given up the theater and everything propelled me into entertainment. And I didn't resist it. -Vincente Minnelli

I did a theatrical musical, Annie Warbucks, when I was 11. We did a tour and we stopped by Los Angeles. -Christina Milian

I've done a lot of costume drama and theatre – the National Theatre and In fact, most of my work at the theatre, at the National Theatre anyway, was period. -Brenda Blethyn

It's a real leveller, you know, to do theatre at least once every two years. -Brenda Blethyn

Everyone the world over talks about British actors and British talent and I think that's because we were trained – until now – in theatre. -Brenda Blethyn

When I left drama school, there were dozens of rep theatres you could apply to where you got a good training. -Brenda Blethyn

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. -Brenda Blethyn

I've made six films since I made Secrets and Lies but I still live in London and I'd love to do theater. -Brenda Blethyn

I'm hoping that word-of-mouth on the film – people seeing it and liking it – that that will drive more people to the theaters, because I haven't seen the billboards or the posters or anything. -Craig McCracken

With a theatre audience there's always the additional sense of a sustained challenge of which I'm acutely aware and for which you need to have the tools ready – your voice, physicality, brain. -Greta Scacchi

Theatre is a sacred space for actors. You are responsible; you are in the driving-seat. -Greta Scacchi

I'm a heathen when it comes to marriage. -Greta Scacchi

The costermongers' boys will, I am informed, cheat their employers, but they do not steal from them. -Henry Mayhew

I was very interested in theatre, mostly in stage design. I did a little bit of acting. -Jim Henson

At the University of Maryland, my first year I started off planning to major in art because I was interested in theatre design, stage design or television design. -Jim Henson

Mystery Science Theater is really a postmodern show, it's really derived of many influences. -Joel Hodgson

Well, really the way worked was that I had probably built fifty robots before Mystery Science Theater, and I had sold them in a store in Minneapolis in a store called Props, which was kind of a high end gift shop. -Joel Hodgson

A lot of the shows that really become hit shows are often demonstrated, like Mystery Science Theater. -Joel Hodgson

I was trained as a neurologist, and then I went into the theater, and if you're brought up to think of yourself as a biological scientist of some sort, pretty well everything else seems frivolous by comparison. -Jonathan Miller

Between parts I was too old for and roles that were too overwhelming, out of reach then for my voice. I carved out a niche with the Wagnerian repertoire since I am attracted by its theatrical intensity. -Placido Domingo

The atmosphere of the theater is my oxygen. -Placido Domingo

At times as a performer they segregated us in some of theatres. -Cab Calloway

They pulled Resurrection out of the theatres, so it was running in New York and I was nominated for the Oscar and there was no ad in the newspapers to say it was running. So it was literally killed. -Ellen Burstyn

I see only defects because I'm not following the scene as it were. I'm not following the other person. It's like the best thing to clarify this is the theater. -Omar Sharif

I don't think it's the job of filmmakers to give anybody answers. I do think, though, that a good film makes you ask questions of yourself as you leave the theatre. -Paul Haggis

I don't know why his lawyers didn't tell him, 'You don't have to answer any questions about your private life, Mr. President. Let them sue you. Take the heat. You don't have to answer.' -Chris Matthews

I always thought that it was every performer's dream. That's the epitome of being an artist, being able to express song, dance and acting in a live theatre setting and really connecting with an audience on that level. -Deborah Cox

It's really a grand old, legendary theatre where the spirits of like Judy Garland and all these great performers have been. The clubs are way more underground. -Deborah Cox

The club shows are really intense and powerful, but for a shorter time, and the audiences are in close proximity than when I'm performing at The Palace Theatre. -Deborah Cox

Where every moment is about truth and I think it's a great challenge every night. That's what really drove me to wanting to do theatre, and it's great. -Deborah Cox

Do some work in the theater if you can. It is the best training you can get. -Juliet Mills

To do theater you need to block off a hunk of time. -George Takei

Toward the end of school I started watching movies. Got a job in a movie theater in Brookline, Massachusetts. -Jim McKay

I want people to feel the heat while they walk down the street and they're just kickin' it. -Missy Elliott

Revenge is a way of life and definitely some thing that we identify with. We all feel cheated in some way about some thing and how nice it would be to do something about it. I mean ultimately it's not the most Christian of sentiments. -Radha Mitchell

There is an intimacy about the Opry Theater that gives an entertainer a special charge. -Charley Pride

I think film and television are really a director's medium, whereas theatre is the actor's medium. -Christopher Eccleston

I think theatre is by far the most rewarding experience for an actor. You get 4 weeks to rehearse your character and then at 7:30 pm you start acting and nobody stops you, acting with your entire soul. -Christopher Eccleston

Rather than disliking theatre, I've expressed a preference for television because it tends to deal in its small way much more with issues and is able to reach a broader church of people than theatre. -Christopher Eccleston

The money is better in films and television. But in terms of acting, theatre is more rewarding. -Christopher Eccleston

Theatre is expensive to go to. I certainly felt when I was growing up that theatre wasn't for us. Theatre still has that stigma to it. A lot of people feel intimidated and underrepresented in theatre. -Christopher Eccleston

Judi Dench and Ian McKellen taught me how to work hard and respect the theatre. -Francesca Annis

Thirty years ago, we were in a movie theater and thought it was so cool because we were finally delivered from the horrors of stained glass and wooden pews. -Bill Hybels

More than anything, people want the reality of the discussion at hand. If what is going on in that building is the real thing, if the transforming love and power of Jesus Christ is being experienced, you can sit on a metal folding chair or in a plush theater seat. -Bill Hybels

The word theatre comes from the Greeks. It means the seeing place. It is the place people come to see the truth about life and the social situation. -Stella Adler

The theatre is a spiritual and social X-ray of its time. -Stella Adler

The theatre was created to tell people the truth about life and the social situation. -Stella Adler

We should have done more damage to the Iraqi forces before they withdrew from the Kuwaiti theater. -Les Aspin

Before we had the kids, my husband and I were traveling a lot and working and really enjoying our lives and each other. We both love the theater and books and travel and so we were really having a lot of fun. -Patricia Heaton

And I started as a journalism major at Ohio State, ended up in theater and I love to read. -Patricia Heaton

What I'd really like to do is do a film or two a year and then do theater in New York the rest of the year. -Piper Perabo

I want to make movies that people talk about when they leave the theater, that aren't clear-cut, but effective and fulfilling in some sense. -Ryan Phillippe

In some European theaters, it's still not uncommon to have a late start and three LONG intermissions, because people actually eat and drink and converse during the intermissions. -Joe Bob Briggs

Faith is like a kernel of wheat. -Joe Bob Briggs

I don't think there has been any increase in sophistication in the audience. When people are aware of a concept that's easy to understand, and there's an actor who will attract them to the theater and it's a movie that's funny three-quarters of the time, it will be successful. -David Zucker

I'm not photographing the model in the classic sense; the model is playing a part in my photographs. It's more like theater. I always work with models I know, and I let them participate in deciding how to act their part. -Kim Weston

Kerri and I met at theatre camp when were 16 years old, which is pretty lame. The rest of us met when we founded the State at New York University in 1988. Most of our adult lives have been spent bickering with these people. -Thomas Lennon

I like doing theaters. I like being up close and personal with the fans. It's really cool. -Ruben Studdard

I worked in rep for six years, then I came to London and to the National Theatre. What's better than that? -Imelda Staunton

When I first started acting, I started in opera and had a great desire to play grand, tragic characters. I got sidetracked in musical theater and ended up doing a lot of comedy. -Leslie Easterbrook

Nearly all of our existing power sources are generators which use a heat cycle. This includes our coal, oil, and gas fired utilities, our automobiles, trucks, and trains, and even our nuclear fission utility power plants. -Wilson Greatbatch

When you buy a gallon of gas, over 60 percent of the energy you pay for goes out the radiator in the form of waste heat? That's why you have a radiator in your car in the first place. -Wilson Greatbatch

The only way to ensure a film is going to sell is put Will Smith in it and you open it in 3,000 theaters and make sure we have all the top promotional spots in each venue. -Omar Epps

I like the theatre because you paint with broad strokes. To me the theatre is stretching its definition really far. -Ajay Naidu

I've always tried to not let movie, television or theatre be all that my life is about. I've always tried to get involved in the community or my family now I have kids. -David Morse

As much as we love playing the small clubs, we'd really like to get ourselves in front of a larger audience. I'm not talking about arenas or anything, but nice theaters and larger clubs. -Chris Frantz

Being out in that heat for two weeks definitely drains your energy. -Cobi Jones

Even though I was theatrically trained, learning to develop a character was an awesome experience. -Corin Nemec

I've been doing my big theater projects, which take years, and writing a song here and there. -David Friedman

The play is on top of me all the time, and I am constantly thinking about it. Even when I leave the theatre, I'll mumble the lines to myself or think about the way the character walks or holds himself. -Donald Pleasence

Doing that, then doing a lot of theater, which I love. Doing guest stars, did two independent films that are going around to all these festivals. Both of them are going to be at the Lake Tahoe Film Festival. -Austin Peck

Ever since I got on Days I've been doing theater. -Austin Peck

I did a play I think my first six months on the show, called Bullpen. Then I got involved with Theater Forty and did this play called Plastic which is about two male models coming to a casting call. -Austin Peck

I think any actor would agree that you can't replace theater. It's immediate. You have the energy of the crowd and every single night it's different. -Austin Peck

Buckwheat may be planted later than any similar crop, and often does well on old meadows or waste land that can be broken after the more exacting crops are planted. -David F. Houston

The ease with which barley may be substituted directly for wheat in human food and its usefulness to replace wheat milling by-products as feed in the production of the milk supply render its abundant production important. -David F. Houston

What this loss means will be appreciated from the statement that one bushel of wheat contains sufficient energy to support the average working man for 15 days. -David F. Houston

I had done a lot of plays, particularly at my own theater in LA, and it was the first time in my theatrical life where I didn't feel that my role was also to keep everybody else working hard. -Gregory Harrison

In musical theater you have to be very big and very animated, while film and television are more toned down. -Kevin Richardson

I met my wife Anne who was a sociology student, and her influence together with activities associated with the student movement of the time opened up my interests amongst other things into the theatre, art, music, politics and philosophy. -Paul Nurse

I had met a young lady who wanted to be in the theater. It was Judy Holliday. She had somehow fallen down the steps of the Village Vanguard, which still exists today. -Adolph Green

You have to transmit to them what it's like being in the theater. And it has to come from somewhere inside you and not by being like what somebody did last year. -Adolph Green

Lost In Space fans are going to get organized, because we'll see them showing up in all the theatres. -Mark Goddard

I grew up in the theater and danced ballet atrociously. -Maureen O'Hara

I tell my children to avoid theatre and go into cinema and TV. -Peter O'Toole

You come in off the street, through the doors of the theater. You sit down. The lights go down and the curtain goes up. And you're in another world. -Robert Caro

Film actors reach a certain level, but they don't get beyond it unless they work in the theater. -Shirley Knight

I moved to LA and decided to do films and television, mainly because the theater in New York is totally dead. -Shirley Knight

My goal was not to be famous or rich but to be good at what I did. And that required going to New York and studying and working in the theater. -Shirley Knight

I'll be going to the granddaddy of the Los Angeles theaters. -Michael Ritchie

The trick is to have my own particular taste and feel for the theater to audiences who have been used to one particular style and taste for nearly 40 years. -Michael Ritchie

I had no training in the theater. I did not study it but just did it. -Michael Ritchie

Suddenly we saw that you could do plays about real life, and people had been doing them for some time, but they weren't always getting to the audiences. They were performed in little, tiny, theatres. -Timothy West

There was no real fringe theatre in London until way after the war, so either a play was done secretly with a club licence or it was done openly and had to be assessed along with everything else. -Timothy West

In 1968 the Arts Council managed to get a grant from the treasury to buy up a lot of derelict touring theatres and put them back in the hands of the local authorities. -Timothy West

The newly decorated theatres produced things like car parks and restaurants, so you could have a good night out, quite cheaply without all that bother of having to go somewhere else. -Timothy West

And to Shakespeare I owe my vision of the world as a theater, wherein all humans are acting out their parts. -James Broughton

Dance, vaudeville, drama, movies – as a child I loved everything that went on in a theater. -James Broughton

I had a toy theater and a magic lantern, and when I was eight I built a stage for theatricals in the attic. -James Broughton

Work in the theater sharpened my verse and my cinema. -James Broughton

The award is important in order to bring people to the movie theater. That's the only principle meaning of any award. -Javier Bardem

But I loved the theatre and I was just doing theatre 24/7 and kept dropping courses because I didn't have the time and the chancellor thought that wasn't a good idea after awhile. -Mandy Patinkin

We did a different show every night. We'd open a show, and then two weeks later we'd open the next show. And two weeks later we'd open the third show until we had all eight running. And it was just one of the richest experiences I'd ever had in my theatrical life. -Mandy Patinkin

Sondheim is the Shakespeare of the musical theater world. -Mandy Patinkin

I'm theater trained. -Steve Zahn

You know what you are getting into, but being out in that heat for two weeks definitely drains your energy. -Cobi Jones

I couldn't feel good about myself hanging out in Armani clothes when my girlfriend can't even pay her heating bill. I'd feel foul and I'd be embarrassed. -Shirley Manson

A concert is not a live rendition of our album. It's a theatrica! event. -Freddie Mercury

I never had any classes or went to theatre school like a lot of actors, so all of my training has been on stage with different directors. That was a pretty good school room. -James Denton

I think theatre helped, only because it was acting experience. I got to work with a lot of directors. -James Denton

The difference – the fundamental difference between theater acting and film acting is that film acting is disjunctive. -James Lipton

In contrast, the control you have in a theatre is very attractive to me. -Judi Dench

The Lord Chamberlin was censoring scripts when I first came into the theater. -Judi Dench

The theater is the thing I love doing most. -Judi Dench

We have to make some radical move to get the attention of everyone. Cheaters can't win and steroids has put us in the position that it's OK to cheat. -Lou Brock

I fell in love with theater there, and after graduation I moved to Los Angeles to pursue acting. -Olivia Wilde

I wasn't hanging around the movie theaters in New York where I grew up, a Manhattan brat. -Peter Bart

I was inspired by a lot of people when I was young. Every band that came through town, to the theater, or the dance hall. I was at every dance, every night club, listened to every band that came through, because in those days we didn't have MTV, we didn't have television. -Quincy Jones

I got tackled once in a movie theater. I was with my mom and brother, and then suddenly I got hit from behind and sort of sprawled out on the candy counter. -Scott Wolf

I am a nationalist… my native soil is the theatre. -Cyril Cusack

I love the theatre and theatre people. -Cyril Cusack

Theatre has no national identity. It is something for the world, whether it is Irish, English, or French. -Cyril Cusack

To maintain one's individuality, integrity, and true personality in the theatre is a big task. -Cyril Cusack

Theater is not to make a living, so I don't have the money pressure. -Dianne Wiest

In the theatrical works we love and admire the most, the ending of the drama generally takes place offstage. -Gustav Mahler

I don't like sitting around in my dressing room very much. It feels a lot like theater. -Jill Clayburgh

I can pay my rent now. I guess I could always do that, but now I can get an apartment with heat. -Kevin Eubanks

In a theater, the part is mine and I can control it as I want to. In the movies, I don't have direct contact, and I am fighting technical machinery. -Max von Sydow

In this country, you have movie actors and theatre actors and television actors. -Max von Sydow

These days, you can do a TV series for five years and all of a sudden be on top of the business. Features don't even run in theaters very long anymore before going right to television. -Tom Berenger

I am a leader. Leaders always get heat. They're always going against the grain. Jimi Hendrix got heat; Bob Marley got heat; Miles Davis got heat. Every great artist got heat. Heat means you're doing something right. -Ziggy Marley

Theatre is more exciting in the sense that you can actually see the audience in the eye. You know there are no takes and retakes. You have one chance to do your job… and you better do it well! -Christine Lahti

Most Americans would agree that Plowshares is a Theatre of the Absurd. -Daniel Berrigan

I might be doing a lot more theater, which is kind of what I love, but there's simply no time for. -Erika Slezak

These rough sketches, which are born in an instant in the heat of inspiration, express the idea of their author in a few strokes, while on the other hand too much effort and diligence sometimes saps the vitality and powers of those who never know when to leave off. -Giorgio Vasari

I stuck with that size because I could bend the strings so well, and somewhere along the line I must have gotten it into my mind that I had small hands, so I was thinking I'd never be able to play a full-scale guitar, but I also felt like I was cheating or cutting corners. -John Fogerty

My father's parents were carpenters. They were also builders partly. They were painters. And several of them were very, active in the theatre and all such nonsense, you know. -Josef Albers

Movies are not scripts – movies are films; they're not books, they're not the theatre. -Nicolas Roeg

The great difference between screen acting and theatre acting is that screen acting is about reacting – 75% of the time, great screen actors are great reactors. -Nicolas Roeg

Television has some lovely aspects to it – and some ghastly aspects – but the theater itself was a wonderful invention. -Patrick Macnee

I gave my life to the Group Theatre, because in it I'm building something for myself. What I build, I am. -Elia Kazan

Despite a large body of work in films, TV, theatre and concerts, I am viewed by many as a Jewish artist. I do not resent the label, except for the fact that I disapprove of labels in general. -Theodore Bikel

I directed a piece of theater in Italy. We took nine fables from the town and we created a play. -Vincent Schiavelli

It's all false pressure; you put the heat on yourself, you get it from the networks and record companies and movie studios. You put more pressure on yourself to make everything that much harder. -John Belushi

Except here it's more power, more energy, younger and also in Europe it's still not only entertainment. Theater or films are looked at as a moral institution. That's why maybe they're so poetic. Here it's clear entertainment. -Maximilian Schell

Unfortunately I put the opening date on the 5th of December 1941 and on the 7th of December the Japanese bombarded Pearl Harbour. My dream of a theater in Washington D.C. came to a prompt end. -Leon Askin

The interest of my mother was more in the entertainment field. She loved to go to concerts and to the theatre. -Leon Askin

But I think theatre in a repressive society is an immensely exciting event and theatre in a luxurious old, affluent old society like ours is an entertaining event. -Janet Suzman

I write for an audience that likes what I like, reads what I read, thinks about the things I think about. In many ways, this puts me in opposition to the people who go to the theater generally. -Eric Bogosian

And, I may add, from what totally unexpected sources come many of those who from the comparatively modest beginning in the chorus rise to the heights of really great achievement in the theatrical profession. -Florenz Ziegfeld

As I had collaborated with visual artists before whether on installations, on performance pieces, in the context of theatre works and as I had taught for a time in art colleges the idea of writing music in response to painting was not alien. -Gavin Bryars

But heat can also be produced by the friction of liquids, in which there could be no question of changes in structure, or of the liberation of latent heat. -Hermann von Helmholtz

The older view of the nature of heat was that it is a substance, very fine and imponderable indeed, but indestructible, and unchangeable in quantity, which is an essential fundamental property of all matter. -Hermann von Helmholtz

What appeared to the earlier physicists to be the constant quantity of heat is nothing more than the whole motive power of the motion of heat, which remains constant so long as it is not transformed into other forms of work, or results afresh from them. -Hermann von Helmholtz

Also watching a movie on DVD is different than watching it in the theater. -Ivan Reitman

Now why should the cinema follow the forms of theater and painting rather than the methodology of language, which allows wholly new concepts of ideas to arise from the combination of two concrete denotations of two concrete objects? -Sergei Eisenstein

But theater, because of its nature, both text, images, multimedia effects, has a wider base of communication with an audience. That's why I call it the most social of the various art forms. -Wole Soyinka

There's a kind of dynamic quality about theater and that dynamic quality expresses itself in relation to, first of all, the environment in which it's being staged; then the audience, the nature of the audience, the quality of the audience. -Wole Soyinka

There's something about the theater which makes my fingertips tingle. -Wole Soyinka

Well, first of all I'll say that I come alive best in theater. -Wole Soyinka

Characterization is integral to the theatrical experience. -Robert Ludlum

A theatre receives recognition through its initiative, which is indispensable for first-rate performances. -Franz Liszt

Because Chicago was to radio what Hollywood was to films and Broadway was to the theatre: it was the hub of radio. -Mel Torme

Firstly I did it in this huge theatre in Avignon, then to smaller places, then bigger places. You have to change the volume of the voice, give more or less. The way you have to relate to space makes it like sculpture. -Isabelle Huppert

But theatre is always a difficult experience. -Isabelle Huppert

I met the Colonel when Elvis was recording some song I'd written for one of his movies. Elvis was just having fun with the gang and all the Memphis boys and Colonel Parker was sitting over here in like a theater seat. -Mac Davis

A lot of the songs start with an image. I was sitting there playing the guitar and I pictured this old, dirty green car, with the window rolled down, in the hot, hot, hot Texas heat, and this beautiful woman I knew when I was a kid sitting behind the wheel, looking out at me. -Edie Brickell

In Hollywood people lie to each other and cheat each other and then go and play tennis. But I don't want to be a tennis player. -David Geffen

The best theatre I've done, I've done right here in this living room. -Jonathan Frid

I'm constantly watching people. Watching their strengths and weaknesses. I find myself going into theater less and less, let alone horror. I gave that up when I was seven or eight years old. -Jonathan Frid

I use cinematic things in a theatrical way on stage, and in film I use theatrical techniques in a cinematic way. -Julie Taymor

I have directed good actors and have gone through the process which is more detailed in theater in a way. You have to get people to stay for two or three hours in a performance. They need more talk and rehearsal than in films. -Julie Taymor

What I don't have in theater is editing. -Julie Taymor

I love the stage, I love the process of acting in theatre, but unfortunately, it doesn't pay the bills. -Kabir Bedi

My operas and my theatre works are very formal pieces. -Harrison Birtwistle

And I'm in favor of that because I have a gay son, who's a very successful theater designer. -Robert MacNeil

We were at the Schubert Theater for two years. And we were the first act. -Eydie Gorme

After that, I started going downtown and doing a lot of theater shows in Chicago. When you go downtown there, it's like you're in New York, it's like going to Broadway. -Kel Mitchell

I did a lot of theater in the South side of Chicago. -Kel Mitchell

Part of the plot was a knock that V wanted to bring down the government and bring chaos. I don't know why I thought of Guy Fawkes, because it was during the summer. I thought that would be great if he looked like Guy Fawkes, kind of theatrical. -David Lloyd

I got into my very theatrical phase. I wore only black: a big black hat and wild hair and wild black clothes, and I carried a sword stick. I went there still looking like Miss Florida, and I came back looking very different. -Delta Burke

I was supposed to go to drama school and then go to New York and do theatre. But I grew up on all those fabulous movies and had read all the bold Hollywood books, and I thought I just had to take a look. -Delta Burke

I hope to continue working in film, television and theatre. -Jeremy Bulloch

I love doing this day, and George was exactly as he's always been, very calm and very gentle, and if I'm in the final cut in the summer theater, I'll be thrilled. If I'm not, well that's the way things go. -Jeremy Bulloch
