What is your job on this show?
Where were you born? Where were you raised? Where did you go to school?
I was born in the wagon of a traveling show (in Central Pa). I was raised by a loose consortium of women who ran a blouse factory (also in Central Pa). My school is the world and its inhabitants, though Wilkes University took a lot of money and credit for my "education".
Complete this sentence: My show is the only one opening in NYC this fall that...?
has both me and a cat in it. Even if you don't like me . . . . Who doesn't like a cat on stage? They made a whole musical about them once. It ran forever; but we have a limited run and our show is mostly about zombies.
Are there any cautions or warnings you’d like to make about the show (e.g., not appropriate for little kids)?
Audience members sitting in the first 2 rows may be eaten.
Which “S” word best describes your show: SMOOTH, SEXY, SMART, SURPRISING?
Yes, all of those "S" words describe our show. As well as Sincere and SsssAwesome.
How important is diversity to you in the theater you see/make?
I feel everyone should be represented in theatre, the living, the dead, the undead, even the partially dead and those unsure.
