Famous quotes containing the words theater and/or musical:

    This ... is an age of specialization, and in such an age the repertory theater is an anachronism, a ludicrous anachronism.
    Minnie Maddern Fiske (1865–1932)

    Syncopations are no indication of light or trashy music, and to shy bricks at “hateful ragtime” no longer passes for musical culture.
    Scott Joplin (1868–1917)
