THE SHORTER THE BETTER

Going through some interviews for a radio series I am working on about musicals, I came across this quote from Tim Rice:

"Most musicals are ten minutes too long... Actually most things in life are ten minutes too long!"

Do you agree?

Being Jewish, I'd have to say 'yes'... and 'no.'
Somethings are at least 10 minutes too long - like Party Political Broadcasts and operas.
On the other hand, things you really enjoy are invariably too short.

I'm sure most people would agree that life itself is at least 10 minutes too short!

You're both right there! Though I suppose (in certain circumstances) the process of dying might prove to be 10 minutes too long...
