Favorite Quotes Vol. XXXII: If a Producer was an animal, what would it be?
George emailed me recently asking for some advice and wondering if I’d look at his material. What George didn’t know, and what many of you may not know, is that my Dad was born and raised in India. So I’ve got a soft spot for all things Indian, including, yes, Bombay Dreams (the star of BD is actually appearing in a reading of a new musical I’m doing this week).
George wrote me a very passionate email (theater folks have one huge thing in common – passion), but it was one quote that I really enjoyed that I wanted to share with all of you. Granted, we’re dealing with some translation issues, and some great metaphor, but I couldn’t resist.
Take it away, George Michael.
“A theatre man lives like a tiger and dies like a tiger, which will not eat the grass even after great starvation.”
I mean, I’m not even quite sure I understand it completely, but I love it anyway.
Grrrrrrrr . . .
