It is so important to get respect for what you do and at the same time give it.
For anyone with half a brain they can see that this play is about the human condition.
You can't just trust to luck; you have to really listen to what that character is telling you.
But today I felt different, today I forgot how long it takes to get into the skin of a character and I remembered it, because today I actually got into that skin and it felt so different.
There is some sadness for me now about acting because it used to be that there was a reverence for actors.
I think in small towns like this one, whether you're a man or a woman, you basically do what there is to do.
I find that there are few reviews that extol women as wonderful artists.
People who call themselves actors and can't ever get work; they do need to get another profession.
At this point the theater America is in such a precarious place.
I know people like spectacle, but I'm interested in moving people.
In theater, the wellspring of the character comes from the doing of it, like a trial by fire, but in front of an audience.
The staff, stage managers, ushers all behaved as if they respected the actors.
I believe in things that move people, if the audience isn't deeply caught up and moved to either laughter or tears then I don't think it is theater.
I have never been interested in specific roles.
I like time off because I also have a life outside of theater.
