|"I sort of think my job as an artist is to get out of the way. When the work is the best, I'm exercising the least conscious control," --Craig Lucas quoted in THEATERWEEK, February 12-18, 1996|

|TONY: Have you . . . sold out to Hollywood?
Lucas: Yes, I've made myself a complete whore upon occasion. I don't wish I'd done anything differently. That seems a fruitless endeavor.
TONY: Any juicy anecdotes?
Lucas: Writing, like making love, is a form of communication, or can be, When you take a lot of money and then are told what to communicate, that makes you a whore. There are already too many stories of Hollywood whoredom, and mine aren't any more shocking or interesting than anybody else's.
--From TIME OUT NEW YORK, May 7-14, 1998

Are these men drinking from the fountain of youth? Because we sure want some.
