Favorite Quotes: Volume V


“The future of our theater is in the names of people I do not know.”
Michael David

Another favorite quote of mine that furthers this week’s theme of the passionate newcomer.

And isn’t it cool how Michael, who wears sneakers with everything and has a thing for McDonald’s Happy Meals, refers to the theater as ours.

He’s saying that the theater is something that we all own.  Something that we all have to take care of and be responsible for if it’s going to prosper.

Something that is ours is something we have to take pride in.

You know what else is cool?  After a few years of Jersey Boys success, no one even remembers that Michael produced Good Vibrations and Dracula.
