What is your job on this show?
Where were you born? Where were you raised? Where did you go to school?
I was born and raised in Chicago and went to Illinois State University to study theatre.
Who is more important in the theater: the actor, the playwright, or the director?
All are of equal importance...theatre is a collaborative art. No show will achieve success without every part working together toward the common goal.
In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?
The beauty of this show is imagination. It brings to life many different fairytales and stories, but using very few sets and props. The storytelling lies in the hands of the actors and the director and the fun part of this show is watching the actors, who are all playing multiple roles, change hats and draw on their imagination and the imagination of the audience.
Which famous New Jerseyite would like your show the best: Snooki, Bruce Springsteen, Thomas Edison?
Bruce Springsteen because our show is BOSS
How important is diversity to you in the theater you see/make?
Diversity is one of the most important things about theatre. It's what keeps our medium fresh and alive and constantly evolving!
