Quote of the Day (Noel Coward, on an Easy Casting Decision for One of His Shows)

“The girl who plays Nancy is quite remarkable. She can neither sing, dance nor act, has a lisp and no top to her head! I left terse orders for her to be replaced.”—English playwright, singer-songwriter, and director Noel Coward (1899-1973), on an inadequate cast member in an Australian production of his musical Sail Away, June 6, 1963 letter to private secretary Lorn Loraine, in The Letters of Noel Coward, edited by Barry Day (2007)
