He is a theater animal who is ignited by his synergy with an audience. Audiences are only beginning to see the tip of the iceberg of what Nathan can do.Arthur Schlesinger
The theater is the primary evidence of a nation's culture.
In the theater, while you recognized that you were looking at a house, it was a house in quotation marks ... on screen, the quotation marks tend to be blotted out by the camera. The problem was to sustain at any cost the feeling you had in the theater that you were watching a real person, yes, but an intense condensation of his experience, not simply a realistic series of episodes. It isn't easy to do in the theater, but it's twice as hard in film.Arthur Miller
God comes to us in theater in the way we communicate with each other, whether it be a [[w:Symphony orchestra]|symphony orchestra]], or a wonderful ballet, or a beautiful painting , or a play . It's a way of expressing our humanity .

Hitler merely said at the beginning that Jewish influence was too great, that of all the lawyers in Berlin, eighty percent were Jewish. Hitler thought that a small percentage of the people, the Jews, should not be allowed to control the theater, cinema, radio, et cetera.franz von papen
Cinema should make you forget you are sitting in a theater.Roman Polanski
Every seat in the theater was taken when Philip appeared wearing a white cloak and by his express orders his bodyguard held away from him and followed only at a distance, since he wanted to show publicly that he was protected by the goodwill of all the Greeks, and had no need of a guard of spearmen.diodorus siculus
Love is a command, not just a feeling. Somehow, in the romantic world of music and theater we have made love to be what it is not. We have so mixed it with beauty and charm and sensuality and contact that we have robbed it of its higher call of cherishing and nurturing.ravi zacharias
The theater, which is in no thing, but makes use of everything gestures, sounds, words, screams, light, darkness rediscovers itself at precisely the point where the mind requires a language to express its manifestations.... To break through language in order to touch life is to create or recreate the theatre.antonin artaud

Peter Pan is perhaps the most important thing, to me, that I have ever done in theater.mary martin
My conception of the audience is of a public each member of which is carrying about with him what he thinks is an anxiety , or a hope , or a preoccupation which is his alone and isolates him from mankind ; and in this respect at least the function of a play is to reveal him to himself so that he may touch others by virtue of the revelation of his mutuality with them. If only for this reason I regard the theater as a serious business, one that makes or should make man more human , which is to say, less alone .Arthur Miller
The best of our theater is standing on tiptoe, striving to see over the shoulders of father and mother. The worst is exploiting and wallowing in the self-pity of adolescence and obsessive keyhole sexuality. The way out, as the poet says, is always through .Arthur Miller

In this theater of man's life it is reserved only for God and angels to be lookers on.
Acting is therefore the lowest of the arts, if it be an art at all.George Moore
There's something strange about theater . My characters consistently demonize elitism, but of course it's taking place in a theater where only so many people can see it. I've been in silly popcorn movies - the kind of thing that as an actor you might feel embarrassed about - but those movies reach many more people.
