Example text

It closes tomorrow and I wanted to get one more look at it before it disappears completely. I was shocked at what I saw. It's bad. And the worst thing about it is that nowhere in it, nowhere, is there one drop of human feeling. You care about no one, you aren't moved by anything. And I'd say that the worst thing about my work (my work, my basic work on the script and on Behrman) is that initially I didn't work through my feelings. I gave a damn about no one. Theoretically, I did. With my mind, in my thinking I did, or felt that I should.

Most times, there was a match of the director's and author's conceptions; yet sometimes Kazan, well, went his own way. ”—for the best American playwrights of the twentieth century trusted Kazan to give the performance of their plays vivid reality, to expose their poetry, to better their work.

And that's the only measure in the theatre, the only one. ” The rest is plus or minus a little, but there is only one question, and that one must be put to the heart, and answered through the feelings.
