Thomas Babe told CTFT: "My work in the theatre began in the 1960s-- about thetime that the modern institutional theatre movement in America was finding itself. Though current fashion has shrunk somewhat the wider boundries I knewwhen I started, the theatre remains the place of maximum freedom in dramaticexpression, representing as it does--in any given season and on a decentralized, nationwide basis--everything from theatricalized sit-coms to the liberating experiments of the Mabou Mines and Martha Clark. It is a financially terrorizing but creatively rewarding form to work in and serves as an important counterpoint to the equally exciting but different worlds of television and film."

Babe died of lung cancer on December 6, 2000, in a hospice in Stamford, Connecticut. He was 59.
