“I don’t believe in ‘original sin.’ I don't believe in 'guilt.' I don’t believe in villains or heroes — only right or wrong ways that individuals have taken, not by choice but by necessity or by still-uncomprehended influences in themselves, their circumstances, and their antecedents.” Tennessee Williams
"I can recall where I was sitting at that first Streetcar viewing -- in about the seventh or eighth row to the right of center. It took only a few minutes to realize that the play and production had thrown open doors to another theater world. This was not due to any invention in the play's structure, with its tangible, realistic story-telling line. Rather, it was the writing itself that left one excited and elevated." Arthur Miller
