The problem [in theater] is that you have all these institutions that have invested in buildings that are very expensive and have to be maintained, and they have to have something to put on their stage and to feed the desires of their subscribers, and as a result they’re selecting work that is popular enough to sell tickets. Which means that writers are creating work to get produced. And I’m like, what if you stopped thinking that way? Theater today doesn’t have to exist in the proscenium anymore.
