I'm positive, but I'm also unsure of where we are headed with digital technologies and what they mean for our industry and the larger culture. Our challenge, I suppose, is to be adaptive to what comes along without giving up the wisdom and glories of the past.

Before the show began, a castmate of mine from another production leaned over from the row behind me and whispered to me, almost conspiratorially, that 'Chekhov is.....challenging', with the apparent implication that she hoped the actors were up for the task (in my estimation, they were).
