What is your job on this show?
When did you know you wanted to work in the theater, and why?
It was probably around age 7 when I was taking my bedspread, wrapping it around my waist to simulate a large skirt, dropping to my knees in the center of the living room and reciting Scarlett O'hara's "Tomorrow Is Another Day" speech for anyone in my family that would listen.
Complete this sentence: My show is the only one in FringeNYC that...?
Has a handsome, talented, sexy, gay lead who will make you laugh and cry...and is single and can swing a big bat! I think I just pimped out my actor for tkt sales!
Are there any cautions or warnings you’d like to make about the show (e.g., not appropriate for little kids)?
Yes BIG warning: If your offended by male full frontal nudity this one man show may not be for you. There I go again trying to sell tkts. Can people demand their money back once they discover that Vincent won't be naked? Well, hold that thought...I think I'm going to suggest it in our next rehearsal.
Groucho, Chico, Harpo, or Zeppo?
Oh, Vincent will have you laughing more than all four of the Marx Brother's combined! THAT's a promise!
Can theatre bring about societal change? Why or why not?
Absolutely! It is the exact reason why I am in the theatre. Theatre has the ability to make people laugh, cry and think. I don't know of a more powerful tool to open people's hearts, shift perspectives, raise awareness and create change...all while entertaining!
