Great quote from Aaron Sorkin from the documentary In Depth: The Evolution of Studio 60, one of the special features on the DVD set that came out last week.:
I have a theater background, and in theater nobody ever asks is it a drama or a comedy, just is it a musical or a non-musical. This is a non-musical.
If Sorkin wrote a musical, I’d go see it.
I always thought that in theater, the correct question was, “Is it a tragedy or a comedy?” :-) I bet Shakespeare would be sad if he knew all his plays were now appropriately described only as “non-musicals.”
