“Central to my technique…is the actor’s understanding of the epic size of theater – in the body, in the voice, in the mind, and in the soul – an understanding that Shakespeare forces actors to embrace their whole selves by exploring man’s Promethean battle with God, fate, and his own personal demons.” – Stella Adler
