The musical has always been in jeopardy - until - or was in jeopardy until it was realised that it is probably the safest living theatre art form.

The truth is, for some absurd reason, no one is willing to admit that the interests of the producers and the theater owners are not the same.

There are wonderful composers and librettists out there. It's the lack of creative producers that is troubling.

There was never any question that I would go to college, that I would travel, that I would go to the theater early and often.

Artistic self-indulgence is the mark of an amateur. The temptation to make scenes, to appear late, to call in sick, not to meet deadlines, not to be organized, is at heart a sign of your own insecurity and at worst the sign of an amateur.

As you get older, you know more and more based on your experience, and you have more to share with people who haven't had that experience. But it's an even exchange, because while you're focusing them and giving them craft, they're sharing contemporary taste. So you're prolonging your creative years. You're staying younger, thanks to that compact.
