Quotable Quote:
"I was born with a healthy Italian constitution, and I’m not being in any way facetious. I have enormous reserves of energy, and you just cannot play these roles if you’re not lucky that way. I’ve had my sicknesses, but I have good breath, good energy and good focus." - Langella to Broadway.com, 6/16
