What is your job on this show?
I play the character of Red, which is a modern take on the classic Little Red Riding Hood story..
What type of theater do you like most to work on?
The type of theatre I tend to gravitate to is edgy and entertaining but still has substance and message. I like doing theatre that makes people laugh as well as think about what's really important in life.
What are some of your previous theater credits? (Be specific! Name shows, etc.)
Grimm Women is my second stage show after doing The Vagina Monologues earlier this year. Doing live theatre is so different then the reality TV world that I'm used to. I'm working on excelling in different parts of the entertainment industry as much as possible so I can continue to grow in my craft.
Do you think the audience will talk about your show for 5 minutes, an hour, or way into the wee hours of the night?
Grimm Women is so unlike the "norm" of stories. I'm confident that audiences will be talking about this performance for a while. These stories are highly intriguing and entertaining and are sure to have your thoughts wrapped around it for much longer then the night after watching the performance.
Which “S” word best describes your show: SMOOTH, SEXY, SMART, SURPRISING?
You can't put this show into one "s" word because there is more then one story pertaining to the performance. If I had to pick one though I would say, "surprising" because the stories really do surprise you! They are just out of this world. Just when you think the characters are about to live "happily ever after" there's a twist in their stories that literally leave you at the edge of your seat dyeing to hear what's happening next.
Who are your heroes?
My mother is my hero. She is the strongest lady I know. No matter what she is going through she always has a smile on her face, a very admirable quality if you ask me. She's been through tough times but she knows who and what is important and doesn't focus on anything else.
