"One of the magical things about theater is that it gathers a crowd of people in a quiet space, and each member of the audience gets to see how people respond differently to the different things being said on stage. The person next to you will laugh at something that you’d never think of laughing at, and you’ll get a glimpse into all the different ways of viewing the world. Unfortunately, so much theater today is less nuanced. It gives you a large dose of one way of thinking, in hopes of getting as many of the same type of people into the theater as possible."

“The theatre is the only institution in the world which has been dying for four thousand years and has never succumbed. It required tough and devoted people to keep it alive”

Did anyone manage to catch this?

Heard most of Daniel’s bit this afternoon. Chatting about his love for the Broadway community/ NYC because they were the people who gave him a chance when everyone else was saying he’d only ever do one thing.

He’s really proud of being nominated for an Astaire when he did How to Succeed… because of his journey from a “blank slate” with no dance experience (and participating rather than being just a disengaged star piece in front). His dance coach for that is now is personal assistant.

Lots of interesting character analysis type talk about Inishmaan… talked about the perception of Hollywood/fame/stardom (in the play and real-life) and the use of the storylines of characters you never see.

Those seem to be the main points that I can recall… I missed Lea Michele.
Anyone else?

Their tagline is “It’s Tech Week Somewhere.” From what I’ve seen so far, this is basically everything your tech self wants from a comic.
