By opening night, everyone expected a minor catastrophe. When Peter endeavors to save Tinker Bell’s life, he shouts to the audience, “Do you believe in fairies? If you believe, wave your handkerchiefs and clap your hands!” Because Barrie was convinced that the play would be a disaster and that this line would be greeted with silence from the stylish adult audience, he had arranged with the musical director to have the orchestra put down their instruments and clap. As it turned out, when Nina Boucicault asked if anyone believed in fairies, the audience applauded so enthusiastically that she burst into tears.
"How can you have lived for so long and still not get it? This self obsession, it’s a waste of living. It could be spent on surviving things, appreciating nature, nurturing kindness and friendship. And dancing." -Only Lovers Left Alive (2013)
Watch this. It is awesome.
