"One of the differences between the movie business and the theater is that movie business is very social. You always have to smile and shake hands. In the movie business, it's always the first day of school. Over time, I have gotten better, but truly I am not comfortable. In the theater, you can be off in a room as your own weird self. There is acceptance in the theater that everybody is like that."-Tracy Letts in a Los Angeles Times story that also blows the lid off the unknown (to me) Albee/Steppenwolf impasse (this is the company's first production of his work), in which the ever-quotable Albee offers this gem: "I can only hold a grudge for no more than 25 years."
