Fran Lebowitz QuotesFrances Ann "Fran" Lebowitz is an American author, public speaker, and occasional actor. Lebowitz is known for her sardonic social commentary on American life as filtered through her New York City sensibilities. Some reviewers have called her a modern-day Dorothy Parker.
The theater itself is so archaic and old fashioned, that it doesn’t really matter to me whether it’s on Avenue D or at the Helen Hayes Theater. What’s the difference? It’s still a very nostalgic form. Also, it means you’re knowingly walking into a room where there’s actors. I feel it’s very embarrassing. Because, you know, they’re right there. You always think like, they can see you, and I think it’s mortifying, frankly, and I hate to sit near the front, where you feel they actually might see you. It’s too … it’s too live.
