What is your job on this show?
What type of theater do you like most to work on?
I like to work on plays that are ensemble based, imaginative and non-linear in structure. I love working with people who want to create theater that goes beyond what is traditional to communicate stories in new ways.
Who is more important in the theater: the actor, the playwright, or the director?
This is a trick question! We all need each other and are all important to the theater. Many theater artists are more than one of these things.
Why did you want to write/direct/produce/act in/work on this show?
I want to act in Broken Heart Story because I have an immense curiosity about the story. I've been exploring and questioning this play since I read it a few months ago. I have a feeling I'll still have this curiosity after we close.
Which “S” word best describes your show: SMOOTH, SEXY, SMART, SURPRISING?
All of the above!
How important is diversity to you in the theater you see/make?
I think that diversity in the theater is extremely important especially in New York where our audiences are from around the world. If we don't tell everyone's story, we are saying that certain people don't exist.
