"I think that human beings inherently create connection, and that’s what theatre offers. Even when things get difficult, there is still going to be that desire. It’s unique to live theatre, and that’s the hope we hang onto." Ashley Woods
"When you know what you want, when you know who you are, regardless of the space, it makes it a lot easier to be able to navigate life and do what you need to do."
"Looking back, it’s easier to see the moments that were crystallizing for me.... One friend asked me what I was going to do, and I said, 'I don’t know, but I know I want to make a difference.'"
"At this time, when everything is so drastically divided in our culture, it feels important to tell stories that are about empathy, accepting and empowering each other, and coming together. It might sound hyperbolic, but that makes our job to save the world."
"We crave connection, and I think that is what theatre is all about — connecting stories to audiences and, more importantly, finding the common experiences and emotions that connect us all."
