Audiences in Theatre

son0-003a“The horror of movies is that they’re always the same – they never acknowledge the audience reaction. What keeps theatre alive is that each experience is unique. Each audience does affect the material, it affects the way that actors perform. Clarity is particularly important to me. I want the audience to at least understand what I’m doing. And then, if they don’t like it, they don’t like it.”
-Stephen Sondheim, on audiences in theatre.
