Quote of the Day: In honor of Chita Rivera's role in THE VISIT at Williamstown, see what the legend has to say about the electric nature of the theatre...

You take a plug and put it in a socket, and that's what the theatre is-it lights up right away. You speak, and they respond immediately.
-- Chita Rivera (via BrainyQuote)
