What is your job on this show?
What is your show about?
The undead are on the loose and it’s up to some of Shakespeares most famous characters to save the world from the Zombie Apocalypse.
What type of theater do you like most to work on?
We love anything that pushes boundaries. We want our audience to think, laugh, be surprised and taken out of their element.
Complete this sentence: My show is the only one opening in NYC this winter that...?
Our show is the only one opening this Spring that has Shakespearean characters battling zombies! We have mind blowing sword fighting, hilarious laughs and ponchos for the crowd (so they don't get covered in blood). How many shows can boast about that! We're more than just a play, we're an epic event.
Do you think the audience will talk about your show for 5 minutes, an hour, or way into the wee hours of the night?
The audience will be talking about our show for the rest of their lives! No, but seriously, it will definitely be the topic of discussion for at least a month. Where else do you get to see bad-ass fighting, amazing acting, have a great free Brooklyn Brewery Beer(with your ticket), and get blood squirted at you? Quite the topic for discussion. Especially since after you see it, you'll make all your friends come!
Groucho, Chico, Harpo, or Zeppo?
All of the above.
How important is diversity to you in the theater you see/make?
Diversity is extremely important to our company. Not only do we strongly endorse colorblind casting, but our board members are as diverse as they come. We have three races, two genders and both straight and gay preferences between the five of us. This allows us a truly open mind and extremely varied perspectives with everything we do.
