"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."
- Oscar Wilde.
"Drama is exposure; it is confrontation; it is contradiction and it leads to analysis, construction, recognition, and eventually to an awakening of understanding."
- Peter Brook
"Great theater is about challenging how we think and encouraging us to fantasize about a world we aspire to."
- Willem Dafoe
