If your idea doesn't work on a small scale, it won't work on a big scale

Another interesting excerpt from the Adam Bryant interview with Francesca Zambello, producer of the Glimmerglass Festival:

I worked for a French director for a number of years as an associate. The most important thing he ever taught me was that if you don’t make sure the show is right in a small room, it will never be right in a big space, on a big stage.

This little quote contains a lot of things we've covered in this space: the importance of out-of-town tryouts, "small wins," creating safe spaces for failure, etc.
