Tiny coverage in the NY Times Magazine about “The Anarchist” David Mamet’s new play about a prisoner and her parole adviser, starring Debra Winger and Patti LuPone. Winger says that she was kicked out of the Actor’s Studio by Shelley Winters who said, “You’re not doing what I asked you.” Anyway, Winger also talks about inspiration, which was the theme of the magazine.
“Inspiration is really about breathing in. I breathe in what I expose myself to. Sometimes it doesn’t work, and then you just try again with the next breath. But you never, ever settle.”
I love this quote. Doesn’t it apply to anything in life? From writing to… parenting?
