Remember this practical piece of advice: Never come into the theatre with mud on your feet. Leave your dust and dirt outside. Check your little worries, squabbles, petty difficulties with your outside clothing -- all the things that ruin your life and draw your attention away from your art -- at the door.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The truth, the absolute truth, is that the chief beauty for the theatre consists in fine bodily proportions.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
The theatre is a gross art, built in sweeps and over-emphasis. Compromise is its second name.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I submit all my plays to the National Theatre for rejection. To assure myself I am seeing clearly.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Compare the cinema with theatre. Both are dramatic arts. Theatre brings actors before a public and every night during the season they re-enact the same drama. Deep in the nature of theatre is a sense of ritual. The cinema, by contrast, transports its audience individually, singly, out of the theatre towards the unknown.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
For the theatre one needs long arms; it is better to have them too long than too short. An artiste with short arms can never, never make a fine gesture.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
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.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Our instructed vagrancy, which has hardly time to linger by the hedgerows, but runs away early to the tropics, and is at home with palms and banyans --which is nourished on books of travel, and stretches the theatre of its imagination to the Zambesi.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Unless the theatre can ennoble you, make you a better person, you should flee from it.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
A good drama critic is one who perceives what is happening in the theatre of his time. A great drama critic also perceives what is not happening.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
I regard the theatre as the greatest of all art forms, the most immediate way in which a human being can share with another the sense of what it is to be a human being.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Narrator: We have front row seats for this theatre of mass destruction. The demolitions committee of Project Mayhem wrapped the foundation columns of a dozen buildings with blasting gelatin. In two minutes primary charges will blow base charges and a few square blocks will be reduced to smoldering rubble. I know this, because Tyler knows this.More [09/07/2005 12:09:00]
Corky St. Clair: My first show was Barefoot in the Park, which was an absolute smash, but my production on the stage of Backdraft was what really got them excited. This whole idea of 'In Your Face' theatre really affected them. The conceptualization, the whole abstraction, the obtuseness of this production to me was what was interesting. I wanted the audience to feel the heat from the fire, the fear, because people don't like fire, poked, poked in their noses, you know when you get a cinder from a barbeque right on the end of your nose and you kind of make that face, you know, that's not a good thing, and I wanted them to have the sense memory of that. So during the show I had someone burn newspapers and send it through the vents in the theatre. And well, they freaked out, and 'course the fire Marshall came over and they shut us down for a couple of days.More [10/22/2005 12:10:00]
Susie: Ok stop, I feel like I'm watching regional theatre you guys. God am I in the Cleveland Playhouse or something? Your craft is a muscle, you need to excersise it. Take a break, think about what you've done.More [12/30/2005 12:12:00]
So, I won't do theatre as much now, I think.More [04/06/2006 12:04:00]
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.More [04/21/2006 12:04:00]
If these theatres didn't exist, the tradition of British theatre would cease to exist.More [04/28/2006 12:04:00]
I've been playing music since I was 12 and I like to play in a band. It takes the place of theatre for me, the live performance element.More [05/02/2006 12:05:00]
I started off in a small theatre performance company and worked my way into commercials.More [05/03/2006 12:05:00]
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.More [05/10/2006 12:05:00]
I love playing one of Pinter's ladies. I've never felt more womanly in my life. This is the first time I've done a play where I can't wait to get to the theatre to escape into the skin of a woman who I am not.More [06/24/2006 12:06:00]
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.More [06/24/2006 12:06:00]
Now I'm seen by more people in one episode than I was in 20 years of theatre and movies. It's gratifying to have an impact on 25 million people a night, but I can say goodbye to my lunch-pail life as a working actor. I'm scared I might be a celebrity.More [07/02/2006 12:07:00]
“The people on the business side in the music business are kind of different from the theatre business. I think it's partly because there are different pressures on the industries.”More [07/10/2006 12:07:00]
“Film is fragmented and gets into lots of other people's hands. There are a lot of pleasures that theatre gives me. You get to perform uninterrupted.”More [07/11/2006 12:07:00]
“The last time I was on stage in New York was in 1972, downtown at the Eden Theatre in Grease .”More [07/15/2006 12:07:00]
I haven't been in most movies because I was so focused on theatre but I would love to be part of a well-funded ensemble.More [08/16/2006 12:08:00]
“I come from the New York theatre world, and I have a lot of gay male friends, so this friendship of Will and Grace's isn't such a stretch.”More [08/21/2006 12:08:00]
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.More [09/18/2006 12:09:00]
I want to protest against St. James's Theatre being demolished!More [10/16/2006 12:10:00]
When I come into the theatre I get a sense of security. I love an audience. I love people, and I act because I like trying to give pleasure to people.More [10/16/2006 12:10:00]
“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.”More [10/30/2006 12:10:00]
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.More [11/09/2006 12:11:00]
“I did a little theatre work after that and the following year I got another part in a television series. Then it was almost to the end of the year before I got more work. That was coming to terms with the reality of the vocation I had chosen.”More [11/23/2006 12:11:00]
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.More [11/25/2006 12:11:00]
So I worked at the Creede Repertory theatre for two years and a lot of those people became lifelong friends. I even still have a home in Creede.More [11/25/2006 12:11:00]
“It's a whole different kind of anxiety. But the great thing about doing a theatre job is that once the ball starts rolling you just have to go with it, it's inexorable.”More [01/08/2007 12:01:00]
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.More [03/12/2007 12:03:00]
I ride, and doing theatre after doing film is a bit like doing dressage or showjumping after you've been out for endless hacks, having just a wild old time. You're put through your paces in a different way.More [03/12/2007 12:03:00]
Rochester: The theatre is my drug, and my illness is so far advanced that my physic must be of the highest quality.More [04/10/2007 12:04:00]
[Dracula is hypnotizing a valet at the theatre where Doctor Seward is enjoying an opera]
Dracula: You vill tell Doctor Seward there is a message for him in the lobby... and you will remember nothing of what I tell you.
[the valet goes to open Seward's chambers and nods her head. She opens the curtain to Seward's chambers and stands there with her mouth open for a few moments, then closes the curtain]
Usherette: [noticing Dracula standing there] Hello, can I help you sir?
Dracula: [mimicking her] Can I help you sir?
Dracula: What's wrong with you, why did you not tell him?
Usherette: About what?
Dracula: About the message!
Usherette: For whom?
Dracula: Never mind! I vill tell him myself. And for your miserable performance, you will receive no tip!
Usherette: No tip?
Dracula: Ah! That, you remember!More [06/27/2007 12:06:00]
Kevin Lomax: God dammit, what did you do to my wife?
John Milton: Well, on a scale of one to ten... ten being the most depraved act of sexual theatre know to man... one being your average Friday night run-through at the Lomaxes' household... I'd say, not to be immodest, Mary Ann and I got it on at about... seven.More [08/27/2007 12:08:00]
Felix Woods: Just keep an eye on her man. 'Cause some of those theatre guys, they have a reputation of being kinda...
Dennis Wallace: Gay?
Felix Woods: See, now that's what they want you to think.More [12/10/2007 12:12:00]
Tommy Five-Tone: Did I miss anything?
Hudson Hawk: Gates tries to blackmail me, you ask me "Did I miss anything." Gates gets killed, you say "Did I miss anything." I bet you went up to Mrs. Lincoln at the Ford Theatre and said "How was the show? Did I miss anything?"More [04/03/2008 12:04:00]
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.More [05/20/2008 12:05:00]
I prefer theatre but TV keeps you well known.More [06/15/2008 12:06:00]
[first lines]
Lemony Snicket: [the Littlest Elf has just come to an abrupt halt] I'm sorry to say that this is not the movie you will be watching. The movie you are about to see is extremely unpleasant. If you wish to see a film about a happy little elf, I'm sure there is still plenty of seating in theatre number two. However, if you like stories about clever and reasonably attractive orphans, suspicious fires, carnivorous leeches, Italian food and secret organizations, then stay, as I retrace each and every one of the Baudelaire children's woeful steps. My name is Lemony Snicket, and it is my sad duty to document this tale.More [07/15/2008 12:07:00]
Jimmy Porter: What friend?
Alison Porter: Helena Charles, I meant to say, she telephoned, she's playing at the theatre next week.
Jimmy Porter: I see, she said 'can I come over' and you said 'My husband Jimmy, if you'll pardon my using such a dirty word, will be delighted to see you, he'll kick your teeth in'.More [08/12/2008 12:08:00]
I love the theatre and theatre people.More [09/04/2008 12:09:00]
To maintain one's individuality, integrity, and true personality in the theatre is a big task.More [09/04/2008 12:09:00]
Capt. Spaulding:
If I were Eugene O'Neill, I could tell you what I really think of you two. You know, you're very fortunate the Theatre Guild isn't putting this on. And so is the Guild!

Rupert Cadell:
[Phillip and Brandon have been arguing about strangling chickens] Personally, I think a chicken is as good a reason for murder as a blonde, a mattress full of dollar bills or any of the customary, unimaginative reasons.

Janet Walker:
Well, now, you don't really approve of murder, Rupert? If I may?

Rupert Cadell:
You may... and I do. Think of the problems it would solve: unemployment, poverty, standing in line for theatre tickets...

Bill Sampson:
What book of rules says that theatre exists only within some ugly buildings crowded into one square-mile of New York City? Or London, Paris, or Vienna?

Addison DeWitt:
We all have abnormalities in common. We're a breed apart from the rest of humanity, we theatre folk. We are the original displaced personalities.

Eve Gill:
I'm afraid the murder might come here madam. Might get into the dressing room. Might even murder me madam. I'm surprised you're not a bit afraid yourself.

Charlotte Inwood:
The theatre is the last place he would be seen. Now stop acting like a silly schoolgirl, the only murderer here is the orchestra leader!

More [06/16/2016 01:06:42]
The theatre isn't big enough! This show has more scenery than Yellowstone National Park!

Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
Now, about dates. There's got to be something on him that will show when he left. I think I can fix to get a receipted bill from the Naval and Military Club -- he stayed there on his last night.

Lieutenant George Acres:
And he went to the theatre. Final celebration. He has the stubs of the tickets in his pocket.

Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
Item: two theatre tickets.

Lieutenant George Acres:
Make it four, and for something worth seeing.

Lieutenant Commander Ewen Montagu:
And what's going on in that bright little mind?

Lieutenant George Acres:
Well, we've got to buy the tickets anyway, and Willie can't use them -- we might as well! There are three of us already, and with Pam's alleged girlfriend...
