“It’s an exhilarating play, and you come off tired, but thrilled.”
“We constantly run lines together before every show too, and then there’s a long, traditionally long, story to tell the audience every show. Today, we’re doing it twice.”
“This play is truly a great invention, and we’re having a great time doing it eight times a week.”
“Being nominated is a great thrill, and we like to say that all four of us were nominated, which means that our director, Anthony Page was nominated four times.”
“People keep telling us, that they didn’t know when they were booking tickets for it, but afterwards they say that they’ve had no sense that they were watching an old fashioned play.”
“The fact is that we like each other very much, and we of course see each other on stage all the time, but this means more time to spend together, and that’s great. We couldn’t be happier.”
