Quote of the Day: In honor of PRINCE OF BROADWAY's world premiere, a word from Harold Prince himself...
"I've always loved Victorian melodrama. And I've always liked larger-than-life theater, providing it's truthful and honest. I like what the theater can provide in energy and bombast - I enjoy it when it's large, and by that I don't mean in size, I mean in emotions. Shakespeare did that."
-- Harold Prince (via BrainyQuote)
