 Laura Muir - “Spencer will always be our theatre of choice for 'A Christmas Carol' in part because that theatre is an important part of the play's tradition and in part because it is a huge show with more than 40 actors - much too large for the downtown space.Of course, Spencer is the only option for larger musicals, plays with more than five or six actors, and productions with more complicated set changes.”  
 Josh Lucas - “That is oftentimes the case with actors because the nomadic element of their life means, in a sense, that they are recreating themselves.

 Rowan Woods - “I could have easily made Little Fish without the stars. I could have. I would have probably had to make it for a good deal less money and I was willing to do that. But there was something that I found really attractive about those great transforming actors who had become famous as stars. To put those people in the role of ordinary folk in the suburbs of Sydney to me was actually interesting in itself, not just as a way of getting people into the movies, but a way of reflecting what I want to do with Little Fish and that is to say that we are all little fish It doesn't matter how famous or successful we are, we are all little fish.”
