"You have two kinds of shows on Broadway — revivals and the same kind of musicals over and over again, all spectacles. You get your tickets for ‘The Lion King’ a year in advance, and essentially a family comes as if to a picnic, and they pass on to their children the idea that that’s what the theater is — a spectacular musical you see once a year, a stage version of a movie. It has nothing to do with theater at all. It has to do with seeing what is familiar. We live in a recycled culture."
