Famous quotes containing the word theatre:
“As in a theatre the eyes of men,
After a well-graced actor leaves the stage,
Are idly bent on him that enters next,
Thinking his prattle to be tedious,
Even so, or with much more contempt, mens eyes
Did scowl on gentle Richard.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
