The Saturday Saying

“The best argument for supporting artists on the edge, and the theaters that produce them, is that the artists we now lump into conservative classical and romantic genres were once regarded as marginal. They made their names by breaking the rules and sabotaging expectations. From Eugene O’Neill to Thornton Wilder to Tennessee Williams, their work became “classics” because what they did stuck, despite critics and audiences with more conventional tastes endeavouring to wipe them aside or, worse, to ignore them.”

Steven Leigh Morris – from his reviews of “Foote Notes” and “Nora” (LA Weekly)
