Theatre Stage Quotes By Kelly Brook

I feel a lot more comfortable on stage in the theatre. It just reminds me of being a kid and doing pantomimes. — Kelly Brook

Theatre Stage Quotes By P.S. Baber

The stage is a magic circle where only the most real things happen, a neutral territory outside the jurisdiction of Fate where stars may be crossed with impunity. A truer and more real place does not exist in all the universe. — P.S. Baber

Theatre Stage Quotes By Andrzej Wajda

The difficulty of writing a good theatre play set in new reality was even greater given that the level of similitude to life that is allowed in a film would not work on the stage. — Andrzej Wajda

Theatre Stage Quotes By Vsevolod Meyerhold

I want to burn with the spirit of the times. I want all servants of the stage to recognize their lofty destiny. I am disturbed at my comrades' failure to rise above narrow caste interests which are alien to the interests of society at large. Yes, the theatre can play an enormous part in the transformation of the whole of existence. — Vsevolod Meyerhold

Theatre Stage Quotes By Nathan Lane

A video taped stage performance is just - you know, it's never gonna be the same as it is if you're sitting there live in the theatre. — Nathan Lane

Theatre Stage Quotes By Yuval Noah Harari

In essence, terrorism is a show. Terrorists stage a terrifying spectacle of violence that captures our imagination and makes us feel as if we are sliding back into medieval chaos. Consequently states often feel obliged to react to the theatre of terrorism with a show of security, orchestrating immense displays of force, such as the persecution of entire populations or the invasion of foreign countries. In most cases, this overreaction to terrorism poses a far greater threat to our security than the terrorists themselves. Terrorists — Yuval Noah Harari

Theatre Stage Quotes By Toni Servillo

Opera is musical theatre, and the music can teach you so much about the theatre. Very often I use musical terms to think about how I comport myself on stage: I employ 'rubati,' 'ostinati,' 'cadenze.' Finding these parallels is very fascinating for me. — Toni Servillo

Theatre Stage Quotes By Matt Lucas

I played Thersites and I remember we were also doing some places out of town before starting our run at The Old Vic in London and we were at the Yvonne Arnaud Theatre in Guildford and I walked on stage and I've got an opening speech that begins: "Agamemnon, how if he had boils?" And I went on and said: "Agamemnon ... " And a woman in the front row just went 'tut'. I thought: "I've only done four syllables, give us a chance!" I got one word out and the audience were already tutting. It was worse than any heckle I ever had doing comedy. So, I'll stick to gnomes. — Matt Lucas

Theatre Stage Quotes By Henry James

To treat a big subject in the intensely summarized fashion demanded by an evening's traffic of the stage when the evening, freely clipped at each end, is reduced to two hours and a half, is a feat of which the difficulty looms large. — Henry James

Theatre Stage Quotes By Philippe Petit

I was born in a world of opera, theatre, films, poetry, art, and therefore, out of the wire, I made a stage. That's why they call me a high wire artist. — Philippe Petit

Theatre Stage Quotes By Romain Rolland

There is only one necessary condition for the emergence of a new theatre, that the stage and auditorium should be open to the masses, should be able to contain a people and the actions of a people. — Romain Rolland

Theatre Stage Quotes By Robert Edmond Jones

There is no more reason for a room on a stage to be a reproduction of an actual room than for an actor who plays the part of Napoleon to be Napoleon, or for an actor who plays Death in the old morality play to be dead. — Robert Edmond Jones

Theatre Stage Quotes By Sheridan Smith

I always say to my Twitter followers to come to the stage door and meet me. What I love about being in the theatre, rather than filming, is that you meet your audience. — Sheridan Smith

Theatre Stage Quotes By James Carver

In comedy, beware the split focus. The audience should focus on the face of the actor. The audience must see the setup. If there is action elsewhere on the stage, the comic line can be lost. — James Carver

Theatre Stage Quotes By Thornton Wilder

I regard the theater 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. This supremacy of the theater derives from the fact that it is always "now" on the stage. — Thornton Wilder

Theatre Stage Quotes By Jeremy McCarter

At that first preview, it was disorienting to watch more than 200 strangers stream into the theater, hailing from God-knows-where. They didn't know they were obstructing what had very recently been Andy's path to the stage, or occupying the spot where Tommy liked to preside, arms crossed, a couple of fingers to his lips. But as Alexander Hamilton kept trying to tell us, even the best-ordered societies need infusions of new blood to thrive. Keep it in mind the next time you go to the theater: Some gifted men and women have built a community in that room, and the immigrant is you. — Jeremy McCarter

Theatre Stage Quotes By Britt Ekland

The idea of doing theatre always terrified me because I get terrible stage fright. In the early 1970s I was offered a panto but the thought of going on stage was just too mortifying. — Britt Ekland

Theatre Stage Quotes By Colin Morgan

The big difference I think between tv and stage is definitely the immediate buzz that you get. And that's not just as an actor, as an audience member you're getting the chance to have this kind of two-way process where the actors and the audience are experiencing the same thing. With tv you often have to wait months and months down the line to actually get the pay-off. Whereas with theatre it's a very immediate thing. — Colin Morgan

Theatre Stage Quotes By Eva Ibbotson

Yet for a moment it seemed to him that the men who had dragged marble from Italy and porphyry from Portugal, who had ransacked the jungle for its rarest woods and paid their millions to build this opulent and fantastical theatre, had done so in order that a young girl with loose brown hair should move across its stage, drawing her future from its empty air. — Eva Ibbotson

Theatre Stage Quotes By Antonin Artaud

Before our eyes is fought a battle of symbols ... for there can be theatre only from the moment when the impossible really begins and when the poetry that occurs on the stage sustains and superheats the realized symbols. — Antonin Artaud

Theatre Stage Quotes By Caterina Murino

Modelling was not very satisfying for me. I came to London to model, and I fell in love with the theatre. I was eating yoghurt every day so that I had the money to go to the theatre. I saw everything. It's still my dream to be on stage in London. — Caterina Murino

Theatre Stage Quotes By Georgia Groome

I started out in theatre, and there's no better feeling than the adrenaline of being on stage. — Georgia Groome

Theatre Stage Quotes By A.B. Potts

Life is like a theatre, but the question is not whether you are in the audience or on the stage but rather, are you where you want to be? — A.B. Potts

Theatre Stage Quotes By Richard Flanagan

Feeling became fashionable and emotion became a theatre in which people were players who no longer knew who they were off the stage. — Richard Flanagan

Theatre Stage Quotes By Olivia Williams

From a very young age, I wanted to get up on stage whenever I went to the theatre - the actors just seemed to be having so much fun. One of my worries about theatre, in fact, is that the actors are quite often having more fun than the audience. — Olivia Williams

Theatre Stage Quotes By Eric Bentley

What then is the difference between film and theatre? Or should one not rather ask: what are the differences? Let us be content wi th the reply that the screen has two dimensions and the stage three, that the screen presents photographs and the stage living actors. All the subtler differences stem from these. The camera can show us all sorts of things
from close-ups of insects to panoramas of prairies
which the stage cannot even suggest, and it can move from one to another with much more dexterity than any conceivable stage. The stage, on the other hand, can be revealed in the unsurpassable beauty of three-dimensional shapes, and the stage actor establishes between himself and his audience a contact real as electricity. — Eric Bentley

Theatre Stage Quotes By Peter O'Toole

I have no intention of uttering my last words on the stage. Room service and a couple of depraved young women will do me quite nicely for an exit. — Peter O'Toole

Theatre Stage Quotes By David Wenham

People who have never done theatre before, and have only worked in front of a camera, would find it very difficult, I think, to know how to command a stage and work with the logistics of being on stage. They're very different. The theatre is quite tricky, actually. — David Wenham

Theatre Stage Quotes By Tom Hardy

I'm into parlor dramas. I'm into theatre. I'm trained for the stage. I trained to do Chekhov and Shakespeare, I was trained for the stage. — Tom Hardy

Theatre Stage Quotes By Tennessee Williams

I can't expose a human weakness on the stage unless I know it through having it myself. — Tennessee Williams

Theatre Stage Quotes By James Denton

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

Theatre Stage Quotes By Kate Morton

A man had said that to her once at the stage door. She'd been leaving after a theatre session, buzzing still with the high of performance, and he'd stopped her to say how much he'd enjoyed it. "You've a great talent for observation," he'd said. "Ears, eyes, and heart, all at once. — Kate Morton

Theatre Stage Quotes By William Shakespeare

As in a theatre, the eyes of men, after a well-graced actor leaves the stage, are idly bent on him that enters next. — William Shakespeare

Theatre Stage Quotes By D.H. Lawrence

After all, the world is not a stage-not to me: nor a theatre: nor a show-house of any sort. And art, especially novels, are not little theatres where the reader sits aloft and watches ... and sighs, commiserates, condones and smiles. That's what you want a book to be: because it leaves you so safe and superior, with your two-dollar ticket to the show. And that's what my books are not and never will be ... Whoever reads me will be in the thick of the scrimmage, and if he doesn't like it if he wants a safe seat in the audience-let him read someone else. — D.H. Lawrence

Theatre Stage Quotes By Amanda Seyfried

I did theatre when I was nine, I think. Nine and ten, and that was just the beginning of my whole involvement in acting, my whole interest. I don't really remember it that well. But it was really fun. I mean, it was exciting just to be on stage in front of an audience. It gives you a different kind of rush. — Amanda Seyfried

Theatre Stage Quotes By Rutger Hauer

I was convinced that acting was for fools. I was on the stage when I was eight with my father, he was playing one of those Greek blind guys that sees things and warns people, whilst I was in a blue skirt. I think there were 5,000 people in the theatre, it was ridiculous. — Rutger Hauer

Theatre Stage Quotes By John Kander

There is a kind of classlessness in the theater. The rehearsal pianist, the head carpenter, the stage manager, the star of the show-all are family. — John Kander

Theatre Stage Quotes By Laurence Sterne

There is no definitive list of the duties of a stage manager that is applicable to all theaters and staging environments. Regardless of specific duties, however, the stage manager is the individual who accepts responsibility for the smooth running of rehearsals and performances, on stage and backstage. — Laurence Sterne

Theatre Stage Quotes By Peter Brook

Theatres, actors, critics and public are interlocked in a machine that creaks but never stops. There is always a new season in hand and we are to busy to ask the only vital question which measures the whole structure. Why theatre at all? What for? Is it an anachronism, a superannuated oddity? Surviving like an old monument or a quaint custom? Why do we applaud and what? Has the stage a real place in our lives? What function can it have? What could it serve? What could it explore? What are its special properties? — Peter Brook

Theatre Stage Quotes By Jay Maisel

You must not think of yourself as looking at the stage from the audience. You must think of it as theatre in the round and look at it from all sides. — Jay Maisel

Theatre Stage Quotes By Eve Best

There are so many huge roles in the theatre: if you've got the option to play Hedda Gabler on stage, why wouldn't you choose that over a three-line part in a Hollywood film as somebody's maid or somebody's wife or somebody's best friend? — Eve Best

Theatre Stage Quotes By Angela Carter

These days, you could stage a three-point orgy in the garden and nobody would bat an eye... — Angela Carter

Theatre Stage Quotes By David Mamet

At the Neighborhood Playhouse School of Theatre, Sanford Meisner said, 'When you go into the professional world, at a stock theatre somewhere, backstage, you will meet an older actor, someone who has been around awhile. He will tell you tales and anecdotes, about life in the theatre. He will speak to you about your performance and the performances of others, and he will generalize to you, based on his experience and his intuitions, about the laws of the stage. Ignore this man!' — David Mamet

Theatre Stage Quotes By Michael Gambon

The theatre starts every night at half past seven, and I like the rhythm of going to the theatre, parking the car, going to the stage door; I've grown up with all of that. I'd love to do more theatre - I mean, I shouldn't be telling the world that I can't remember lines any more, but I find it more and more difficult, so I don't know. — Michael Gambon

Theatre Stage Quotes By Clive Swift

Acting is a sport. On stage you must be ready to move like a tennis player on his toes. Your concentration must be keen, your reflexes sharp; your body and mind are in top gear, the chase is on. Acting is energy. In the theatre people pay to see energy. — Clive Swift

Theatre Stage Quotes By Ewen Bremner

Whatever I do, it's crucial to me that I give it 100 per cent. It doesn't matter if it's a short film, stage, theatre, TV or blockbuster. It doesn't matter what level of budget or prestige it is. — Ewen Bremner

Theatre Stage Quotes By Charles Saatchi

I find the theatre faintly embarrassing for the actors performing on stage. It seems rather showy-off in an undignified way. — Charles Saatchi

Theatre Stage Quotes By Susan Hill

I like going into a school matinee. I like to be behind the stage because there's a spy-hole and what you see is the best moment in all theatre. — Susan Hill

Theatre Stage Quotes By James Kirkwood Jr.

I switched to thoughts of the play. It was by far the healthiest item to concentrate on. Rehearsals were only days away; there is something wildly exciting about a company assembling for the first time on stage. There is also something strangely sexy about it. I can't pin it down, there just is. — James Kirkwood Jr.

Theatre Stage Quotes By Constantin Stanislavski

The main difference between the art of the actor and all other arts is that every other [non-performing] artist may create whenever he is in the mood of inspiration. But the artist of the stage must be the master of his own inspiration, and must know how to call it forth at the hour announced on the posters of the theatre. This is the chief secret of our art. — Constantin Stanislavski

Theatre Stage Quotes By Randeep Hooda

During my theatre days, I was more comfortable doing comedy. It's such an irony. I have always played a buffoon on stage, and yet I don't have any comic role to my credit. — Randeep Hooda

Theatre Stage Quotes By Jeff Britting

The idea for Anthem the play began over twenty years ago. I was assisting in the production of another Ayn Rand work, Ideal. I moved to New York and began working on producing the play with my partners. And as a way to raise money to cover some venture debt, we decided to stage Anthem for a limited run at the Lex Theatre in Hollywood. — Jeff Britting

Theatre Stage Quotes By Joan Collins

I've never chased fame. I came into this business to be a theatre actress. I was nine when I first appeared on stage. But I can't say I would turn my back on fortune. I'm someone who enjoys the benefits of money. — Joan Collins

Theatre Stage Quotes By Sasha Roiz

I went to theatre school for four years and just wanted to do theatre. I had no ambition to be on TV or to be on camera. I just wanted to go to New York or London and be on stage ... I did a lot of theatre in Montreal, got involved in TV in Toronto and then moved to L.A. I hope that film and TV will take me back to theatre. — Sasha Roiz

Theatre Stage Quotes By Lady Gregory

I really do not see why there is not a splendid field for good work on the music hall stage, and if I did not have my own theatre taking up my time, I should rather like to go into it. — Lady Gregory

Theatre Stage Quotes By Martin Shaw

My very first professional job was with a theatre company in 1965 and the first job they gave me was literally shovelling sh*t. I was an assistant stage manager and they told me to clear out the prop store. I opened it up and no-one had been in there for 25 years and it was inches deep in rat sh*t. So before I could get anywhere I had to clear it up. I thought, 'All these years of training, the best drama school in the world, and this is what I'm doing.' — Martin Shaw

Theatre Stage Quotes By Oscar Wilde

The stage is not merely the meeting place of all the arts, but is also the return of art to life. — Oscar Wilde

Theatre Stage Quotes By Seamus Dever

I used to love stage above all, but that was when I was a single man. As I get older, the time commitment gets harder for theatre. — Seamus Dever

Theatre Stage Quotes By Kenneth Tynan

No theater could sanely flourish until there was an umbilical connection between what was happening on the stage and what was happening in the world. — Kenneth Tynan

Theatre Stage Quotes By Tom Riley

Performing on stage is my first love - it's why I wanted to be an actor in the first place - and 'Arcadia' is the highlight of my career so far. I love the intimacy of a live theatre audience - you can really squeeze every last drop out of each scene. — Tom Riley

Theatre Stage Quotes By Seohyun

When I stand on stage, I get nervous, and because unexpected situations can occur, we need even more preparation. I must have confidence on top of that as well. The reason why I chose drama/theatre as my major is to act after learning all the theory first. You only live once, and I can only live as myself. I think I could learn a lot of things if I can live as others through acting. — Seohyun

Theatre Stage Quotes By David Mamet

Don't write stage directions. If it is not apparent what the character is trying to accomplish by saying the line, tell us how the character said it or whether or not she moved to the couch isn't going to aid the case. — David Mamet

Theatre Stage Quotes By William Shakespeare

Totus mundus agit histrionem. (All the World's a Stage.)
[Motto of William Shakespeare's Globe Theatre (f. 1599) and its acting company, The King's Men; taken from the first play to be performed on the new stage.] — William Shakespeare

Theatre Stage Quotes By Ewan McGregor

As a child I was taken to the pantomime or the theatre and I would always, always fall in love with somebody on the stage. And want to have sex with them. — Ewan McGregor

Theatre Stage Quotes By Uta Hagen

Once in awhile, there's stuff that makes me say, That's what theatre's about. It has to be a human event on the stage, and that doesn't happen very often. — Uta Hagen

Theatre Stage Quotes By Elaine Paige

I received the most fantastic welcome to the Broadway Theatre community. I walked on stage to tremendous applause and a long standing ovation, wondering when I was ever going to be able to say my first line! — Elaine Paige

Theatre Stage Quotes By Sophie Thompson

Wyndham's is a beautiful old theatre. The sensation on the stage isn't as different as you might think from the Royal Court. — Sophie Thompson

Theatre Stage Quotes By 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

Theatre Stage Quotes By Jerry Garcia

See, there's only two theaters, man that are set up pretty groovy all around for music and for smooth stage changes, good lighting and all that - the Fillmore and The Capitol Theatre. And those are the only two in the whole country. — Jerry Garcia

Theatre Stage Quotes By David Mamet

It is more frightening but it is not less productive to go your own way, to form your own theatre company, to write and stage your own plays, to make your own films. You have an enormously greater chance of eventually presenting yourself to, and eventually appealing to, an audience by striking out on your own, by making your own plays and films, than by submitting to the industrial model of the school and studio. — David Mamet

Theatre Stage Quotes By Lee Hall

Whether you are a writer or an actor or a stage manager, you are trying to express the complications of life through a shared enterprise. That's what theatre was, always. And live performance shares that with an audience in a specific compact: the play is unfinished unless it has an audience, and they are as important as everyone else. — Lee Hall

Theatre Stage Quotes By Tony Shalhoub

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

Theatre Stage Quotes By Callan McAuliffe

I've never been a really big fan of theatre. I don't know why. It's so much for effort. It's much more difficult for me than stage acting just because of the pressure that's piled on you and you have to learn the entire performance by heart. — Callan McAuliffe

Theatre Stage Quotes By Andrew Lloyd Webber

When people ask me if musical theatre should be taught in music colleges, I reply that there is no need. All anyone needs to study is the second act of La Boheme because it is the most tightly constructed piece of musical theatre that there is. It is practically director-proof: you can't stage it badly because it just works too well. If you can write La Boheme, you can write anything. I would also recommend studying Britten's Peter Grimes. — Andrew Lloyd Webber

Theatre Stage Quotes By Kenneth Koch

AESTHETICS OF AVANT-GARDE THEATRE
Make the stage an actor
Make an actor the stage. — Kenneth Koch

Theatre Stage Quotes By Clint Eastwood

Stage actors are usually much more conscious of speaking up and making sure that everyone can hear in the back of the theatre; a film actor probably thinks of that a little less. — Clint Eastwood

Theatre Stage Quotes By Simon McBurney

Theatre is about the collective imagination ... Everything I use on-stage is driven by the subject matter and what you might call the text - but that text can be anything, from a fragment of movement or music to something you see on a TV. — Simon McBurney

Theatre Stage Quotes By Jonathan Meades

I don't like the theatre. I like plays in which the audience is addressed by the actors. I don't like seeing people talking to each other on stage as if there isn't an audience. — Jonathan Meades

Theatre Stage Quotes By Michaela Conlin

I was trained on stage at NYU in New York City; I did a lot of theatre then. — Michaela Conlin

Theatre Stage Quotes By Sarah J. Maas

That was when they noticed that every musician on the stage was wearing mourning black. That was when they shut up. And when the conductor raised his arms, it was not a symphony that filled the cavernous space.
It was the Song of Eyllwe.
Then Song of Fenharrow. And Melisande. And Terrasen. Each nation that had people in those labour camps.
And finally, not for pomp or triumph, but to mourn what they had become, they played the Song of Adarlan.
When the final note finished, the conductor turned to the crowd, the musicians standing with him. As one, they looked to the boxes, to all those jewels bought with the blood of a continent. And without a word, without a bow or another gesture, they walked off the stage.
The next morning, by royal decree, the theatre was shut down.
No one saw those musicians or their conductor again. — Sarah J. Maas

Theatre Stage Quotes By Thomas Heywood

The world 's a theatre, the earth a stage, Which God and Nature do with actors fill. — Thomas Heywood

Theatre Stage Quotes By David Wenham

My biggest ambition when I was younger was to appear on stage at what was then Nimrod, which is the theatre where my father used to take me on Sunday afternoons to see matinees. The most extraordinary things used to occur on that stage. — David Wenham

Theatre Stage Quotes By Anton Chekhov

I swear fearfully at the conventions of the stage. — Anton Chekhov

Theatre Stage Quotes By Thomas Pynchon

It is part," Rollo writes home to the elder Dr. Groast in Lancashire, in elaborate revenge for childhood tales of Jenny Greenteeth waiting out in the fens to drown him, "part of an old and clandestine drama for which the human body serves only as a set of very allusive, often cryptic programme-notes- it's as if the body we can measure is a scrap of this programme found outside in the street, near a magnificent stone theatre we cannot enter. The convolutions of language denied us! the great Stage, even darker than Mr Tyrone Guthrie's accustomed murk ... Gilt and mirroring, red velvet, tier on tier of box seats all in shadows too, as somewhere down in that deep proscenium, deeper than geometries we know of, the voices utter secrets we are never told ... — Thomas Pynchon

Theatre Stage Quotes By Michelle Ryan

When I was ten, I saw 'Grease' on stage and thought: 'I want to be part of that; it looks like so much fun.' My mum enrolled me in a local theatre group, and it all went from there. — Michelle Ryan

Theatre Stage Quotes By Carrie Coon

I've been seeing a lot of theatre in New York, and I am sort of terribly jealous of everyone on stage but also really appreciating it in a way that you can't when you're in the middle of it. — Carrie Coon

Theatre Stage Quotes By Christian Slater

There's something about doing theatre in London - it sinks a little bit deeper into your soul as an actor. It's something about the tradition of theatre, about performing on the West End stage. — Christian Slater

Theatre Stage Quotes By Walter Scott

He seems, in manner and rank, above the class of young men who take that turn; but I remember hearing them say, that the little theatre at Fairport was to open with the performance of a young gentleman, being his first appearance on any stage. - If this should be thee, Lovel! - Lovel? yes, Lovel or Belville are just the names which youngsters are apt to assume on such occasions - on my life, I am sorry for the lad. — Walter Scott

Theatre Stage Quotes By Rene Descartes

So far, I have been a spectator in this theatre which is the world, but I am now about to mount the stage, and I come forward masked. — Rene Descartes

Theatre Stage Quotes By Martin Esslin

The Theatre of the Absurd has renounced arguing about the absurdity of the human condition; it merely presents it in being - that is, in terms of concrete stage images. This is the difference between the approach of the philosopher and that of the poet; the difference, to take an example from another sphere, between the idea of God in the works of Thomas Aquinas or Spinoza and the intuition of God in those of St. John of the Cross or Meister Eckhart - the difference between theory and experience. — Martin Esslin

Theatre Stage Quotes By Donna Tartt


and yet, whenever he started with the questions I froze stiff, as if I'd been pushed onstage in a play where I didn't know the lines. — Donna Tartt

Theatre Stage Quotes By Meg Howrey

When you step from the wings onto the stage you go from total blackness to a blinding hot glare. After a moment you adjust, but there is that moment. like being inside lightning. — Meg Howrey

Theatre Stage Quotes By Kyo Maclear

The fog turned a strange yellow, then orange, then black. The gilded winged statue Victory at Buckingham Palace retreated into mist. St. Paul's was a hazy outline, ghostlike in the gloom. La Traviata at the Sadler's Wells theatre was terminated midway because the audience could no longer see the singers on stage. Pedestrians noticed how everything below the waist disappeared. Knees, shoes, dogs became indistinguishable. The Great Smog was days and nights of people and things passing out of sight and existence. It seemed a fitting time for a mother to evaporate. — Kyo Maclear

Theatre Stage Quotes By Emma Watson

Originally what I used to love was being on a stage and reacting to a live audience and maybe my calling is more in theatre. — Emma Watson

Theatre Stage Quotes By Jim Henson

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

Theatre Stage Quotes By Robert Dessaix

In the theatre, you are in love with what is on the stage, with the moment. You just don't get that with movies or videos, or TV, where you know that what you are seeing is repeatable. — Robert Dessaix

Theatre Stage Quotes By Peter Brook

I can take any empty space and call it a bare stage. A man walks across this empty space, whilst someone else is watching him, and this is all that is needed for an act of theatre to be engaged. — Peter Brook

Theatre Stage Quotes By G. Wilson Knight

A stage set should not make a pretty picture of its own. The empty stage should look formal and pleasing, but should seem to be waiting for the action to complete it; it should not hold definite significance in itself. — G. Wilson Knight

Theatre Stage Quotes By Moss Hart

One begins with two people on a stage, and one of them had better say something pretty quick. — Moss Hart

Theatre Stage Quotes By Lillian Russell

The society girl meets more dangers than the girl on the stage. There is more danger at a tango tea than in the theatre. The actor is less dangerous than the dancing master. — Lillian Russell
