NOTES

About "A Doll's House": "If you start acting the politics of the play, you lose its heart; it's as simple as that. You have to play the truth of the situation and not be afraid of looking too weak or girly or whatever. I don't think it's a story about a woman; it's a story about a marriage, so when Nora gets to leave, she's full of doubt. She only knows one thing--that she doesn't know who she is." --Janet McTeer quoted in Time Out New York, March 27-April 3, 1997

"We're doing the play as I think it was meant to be done. It's not a play about Nora, it's a play about marriage--one that shows the cracks for what they are."

"I realized this had nothing to do about being 9 feet tall or 10 feet wide. It's about being made a little person." --McTeer in New York Post, April 2, 1997

Director Gavin O'Connor on casting McTeer in "Tumbleweeds": "I wanted to get an actress no one knew," said O'Connor. "I had been reading about Janet in the trades, and I never thought about her for the part. I had this preconception of this very stuffy, high-brow-arching, English stage actress. And all of a sudden, this broad shows up [on "Charlie Rose"]. This sexy, charming, funny, irreverent woman, and a light went on." --From Mitchell Fink's column in Daily Neews, October 27, 1999
