I've done a lot of theater, and I know that it's a different audience each time who doesn't know the story, and we have to tell it.
The life of an editor is not a glamorous one. You're a fixer; you make things better.
When I got out of Yale Drama School, I was completely broke.
I've done a lot of movies, but my favorite was 'Blind Faith.'
I've done a lot of Shakespeare as a young man; I was involved with Shakespeare and Company.
