What does John Cullum look for when he's looking at a script?

Emily explains how John Cullum summons "Aristotle" and looks for the elements that Aristotle recommends in the "Poetics."

Other things he checks out as an actor -- who and what is the character, and is the character someone with whom he can identify.

I was interested in Aristotle's criterion for spectacle. I wonder how that would be applied to an intimate 2 person play. Are there good plays in the theater today that wouldn't meet Aristotle's standards (even loosely defined)?
