Personal Quotes (2)

We're talking about comparing it to a film, which was amazing, and the actors were such great actors in terms of style, but it's important not to just hold onto that. My 15 year old nephew came to the show, and it's his first Streetcar, and lots of people's first Streetcars, so it's important in that sense too. As far as the criticisms go, it's news making, but that's about it.
The career stuff is easy; it is just about saying, 'Yes, I would love to to come and do that.' But I have not cleaned my bathroom in three months.
