Famous quotes containing the words theatre and/or masterpiece:

    To save the theatre, the theatre must be destroyed, the actors and actresses must all die of the plague. They poison the air, they make art impossible. It is not drama that they play, but pieces for the theatre. We should return to the Greeks, play in the open air: the drama dies of stalls and boxes and evening dress, and people who come to digest their dinner.
    Eleonora Duse (1858–1924)

    A masterpiece of fiction is an original world and as such is not likely to fit the world of the reader.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)
