Q: How do you combine your own ideas with the audience’s preferences? A: “I don’t really feel the difference. Shakespeare’s plays are Bible for the theater, but they were popular during his time too. He edited and revised his plays based on the reactions of his audiences. So it’s not right to keep his plays exactly the same when we put them on now. Because it’s the audience of today that’s watching. Making the plays superficially interesting is accommodating the audience’s tastes, but taking into consideration what the audience enjoys today is respect.”
