Instead of books, art, theatre, and music being consigned to specialized niches, we might have a criticism that better reflects the eclecticism of our time, a criticism that takes in various arts all at once.
Drama criticism ... is a self-knowing account of the way in which one's consciousness has been modified during an evening at the theatre.
The trouble with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.
Norman Vincent Peale
The word theatre comes from the Greeks. It means the seeing place. It is the place people come to see the truth about life and the social situation.
