"And in the final analysis, what survives tonight?
Theater, because it’s what we live, we’re changing some lives tonight. And theater thrives because we live to give it, so to speak. This ain’t reality TV, this is eight shows a week. Every chorus member that you saw tonight tappin’, had to make miracles happen, for a chance to see you clappin’ and applauding in the audience. What’s next? Who knows? Anything goes. Now go see a mother *ahem* Broadway show."
