"During the ’60s I’d seen the Living Theater live. And of course during the Vietnam protests and political demonstrations there were all kinds of theater. I was aware of Artaud and Genet and some of Beckett’s work. I was aware of the Happenings, but I’d never really seen any of it."

-Paul McCarthy
