Personal Quote:

[As a perfectionist who strove for naturalism among his actors] When people tell me the direction was wonderful, I know I've failed. The audience should be entranced, hypnotized, transported like children listening to a fairy tale.

Trivia:

Won the 1950 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the musical, "South Pacific", collaborating with Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. See more »
