"In theater, opera is the purest musical form. Which is to say that the music comes first, and you make allowances for everything else."
"The traditional emotional trajectory of the American musical can be seen in any Astaire-Rogers picture: they talk; and then, when they reach an emotional point beyond speech, they sing; and then, when they reach an emotional point beyond song, they dance."
