Thank you Michael Bradley Block for interviewing me for my current show, QUIET PENINSULA. Check the whole interview on www.TheaterInTheNow.com! And get tickets for the show here!
Why theater?: Acting has always fascinated me and fed my imagination. Simply by playing pretend, I get to challenge, to touch, and to entertain people; and I find that extremely fun and gratifying. Not to mention, the community that theater builds is unique and wonderful.
Who do you play in Quiet Peninsula?: Lauraine, a Detroit police officer, who is waiting for the fallout from a big mistake.
If you could work with anyone you’ve yet to work with, who would it be?: In my wildest dreams: Ian McKellen, or Martin Freeman, or Maggie Smith
Who would play you in a movie about yourself and what would it be called?: I'm gonna go with Dawn French to play me and it'd be called "Will Work For Chocolate"
What’s the most played song on your iTunes?: Don't judge me: it's usually the score to either "The Avengers", "Thor", "Chronicles of Narnia", "Dark Knight", or "X-Men: First Class". (I listen to action movie soundtracks when I workout ...and sometimes I imagine I'm a superhero on a treadmill.)
What’s up next?: After The Fringe, I'll be performing in #Serials@TheFlea, which is a popular late night show, involving hot new NYC writers and directors. And then in September, I have my annual family reunion at the Monterey Jazz Festival, where I get to relax for a weekend, stuff my face with soul food, and listen to amazing jazz.
