Let's Definitely Say

"- And speaking of reality...let's say theatre is not dying...not even really ailing. Let's say that theatre will go on and on and on for all of human history on this planet. And let's say that it will look like this forever: there will be big fancy theatres that do shows and plays and whatnot and appeal to the widest audience with the bluntest objects they can find and there will be mid-sized theatres that ape the big theatres and there will be small theatres that do their own thing, some trying to be mid-sized theatres, some not and there will be little theatres struggling for oxygen, growing, blooming, dying in short bursts, all the time, all over. And that is what American theatre will be. And no blog, no book, no single theatre company is ever, ever going to change that. Let's say all of that. a wiser man than I once said, "What are you prepared to do?"

Remember, the first thing we all learn about theatre? It's about action."
