"We learn through experience and experiencing, and no one teaches anyone anything. This is as true for the infant moving from kicking to crawling to walking as it is for the scientist with his equations. If the environment permits it, anyone can learn whatever he chooses to learn; and if the individual permits it, the environment will teach him everything it has to teach." - Viola Spolin

"There is a certain immortality involved in theater, not created by monuments and books, but through the knowledge the actor keeps to his dying day that on a certain afternoon, in an empty and dusty theater, he cast a shadow of a being that was not himself but the distillation of all he had ever observed; all the unsingable heartsong the ordinary man may feel but never utter, he voiced. And by that, joins the ages." - Arthur Miller

Tommie Grabiec as James, Chimera, 2017

The actor creates his model in his imagination, and then, just as does the painter, he takes every feature of it and transfers it, not on to canvas, but on to himself. - Coquelin the Elder

Tommie Grabiec as Perp, Marsy's Law Ohio - One Day, 2017

"An actor is totally vulnerable. His total personality is exposed
to critical judgement - his intellect, his bearing, his diction,
his whole appearance. In short, his ego.
" - Alec Guinness
