Personal Quotes (2)

Theatre has so many competitors, it's no longer enough to see and hear a play. You want to be able to touch and smell it, too.
Censorship constrains art and limits its impact as much as it does with all free thought. Therefore, even if censorship might encourage creative ways to circumvent it, it still slows down progress and our ability to realize our full creative potential. And that is why I vehemently fight against it.
