Theatre Family Quotes By Constantin Stanislavski

The first theatre I ever found was in the backyard of a new suburban community in the foothills of the Poconos. My dad was a young FBI agent at his first or second posting - we're all from New York.

I would go out there after lunch every day and sing opera. — Constantin Stanislavski

That was the lesson I learned that day, and I'll be forever grateful I did. Some years later, deep in the ruins called Theatre of Death, it salvaged everything. — Terry Hayes
