Quote of the Day: On the elusive power of the theatre...

"I feel there's a power in theatre, but it's an indirect power. It's like the relationship of the sleeper to the unconscious. You discover things you can't afford to countenance in waking life. You can forget them, remember them a day later or not have any idea what they are about."
-- Tony Kushner (via BrainyQuote)

What we're reading: A new book outlining the career of composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz -- titled THE MUSICAL THEATER OF STEPHEN SCHWARTZ -- hits the shelves today. We're curious to see how thorough and engaging it is!
