If you have anything to do with the theater, buy this book. "I've been fortunate to spend many an afternoon with author Louis Phillips, sharing his insightful appreciation of movies, plays and poetry. Luck has come your way! Here you have it: Theatre treasures from A to Z. You pick the time (lots or little) and let Louis be your tour guide into this wondrous chronicle. "The Audience Book of Theatre Quotations" commemorates recitals both malicious and hilarious. You won't be able to resist prolonged applause and a standing ovation!" --Richard D. Pepperman; Film editor, teacher, and author of The Eye is Quicker Film Editing: Making a Good Film Better; Setting Up Your Scenes: The Inner Workings of Great Films; Film School: How to Watch DVDs and Learn Everything About Filmmaking "There are so many great quotes, it is a fascinating read." --William E. Cooper, Reader Views "... this book will inspire the inner theatre lover in us all." --Vianna Renaud, TCM Reviews “You read through The Audience Book of Theatre Quotes and it's like taking a trip through theatre-time superimposed on your own personal life-in-the-theatre time. Quotes from the likes of Dorothy Parker, Laurence Olivier, David Mamet, Hume Cronyn, Robert Benchley, Ben Hecht, Basil Rathbone and hundreds of others, always intriguing, mostly funny, sometimes filled with almost scriptural vision/insight. A book to be read slowly, maybe a page a day, either when you first get up or before you go to bed, letting the wisdom/humor either seep through your whole day, or ease you through your dreams.” –-Hugh Fox, professor, author of numerous books, poet, critic, playwright
