"Small triangular love stories..."

Here's a pithy quote that reminds me of the kind of theatre I don't want to make: decorous and stagnant and stifling. Is today's lousy American theatre really that different from yesterday's?
"[Broadway in the 1930s] continues to tell in polite whispers its tales of small triangular love stories in small rectangular settings."
--Hallie Flanagan (head of the Federal Theater Project and subject of my new play)
