Quotes edit

But it represents [...] the only kind of thinking that can prepare the way for great art, and builds the path to a reconciled society.
    • "More Noise Than Funk", The New Republic (3/4/1996) - review of the George C. Wolfe / Savion Glover musical production Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk at the Public Theatre in New York
