Norbert Leo Butz's quotes

  • I hate sitting around a table and talking about what a play might mean. I'm the person who's always like, 'Can we get up on our feet and just do it?'
  • I was in the original cast of 'Wicked', and that got a bad review in 'The New York Times,' and it's the most successful thing that's ever been put onstage.
  • I have 10 brothers and sisters.
  • If you individualize an audience, it helps up the stakes of your responsibility to that audience.
  • It's thrilling to be onstage and to not know, literally, what the next moment is going to bring. To just submit to the not-knowing-ness of it.
  • I make decisions quickly.
  • If you are opening a play, a play that's really about something, a play that's really about ideas, you have to find a way to sell that play.
