I did theater at Carnegie, and in Pittsburgh and New York.

I do a medley of hymns in all of my sets, whether I'm in an arena, in a theater, in an amusement park.
It's one of the functions of the theater to shock and titillate and appall, apart from entertain and delight.
Because I was a dancer, I started going to auditions for musical theater, which forced me to sing.
There were centuries when civilization had no theater.
There are people who've enjoyed my work in the theater, and they let me know that it was special for them. I'm not going to say, 'Well, you should have seen me as Gandalf!'
I find theater very lazy and artificial, and then when it's not, it lacks refinement.
Once I had started film, I suddenly said, 'Wow, I love it.' I moved there from New York. But I've always gone back to the theater, and it is more satisfying, really, because you get to give a continuous performance - no sequels.
I want to be a recording artist for my whole entire life. But Broadway is something I would come back to at any given moment. I love, love, love doing theater.
I love the smell of a theater. The old rooms and the carpet and all that stuff. I love to tell stories. Even before I was doing music, I saw myself as a director. So most of my songs come in a play form, you know, where there are characters and stories, so I like to go beyond just the song sometimes.
I'd love to return to theater.
I don't think I ever really got interested in theater.
