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 a suburb of CT just outside New Haven. As for college, I studied theatre at Boston University and spent about 5 years after school working in the theatre/film community there. It was wonderful. I recently moved to NY and am now embarking on a creative journey here.
Complete this sentence: My show is the only one in FringeNYC that...?
contains the word SLAMBOOZLE. Multiple times.
In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?
I think this show is about being in your 20's, and both the wonderful excitement of that time in your life, but also the confusion, fear, and pressure you feel, especially in regard to relationships. I think audiences will take away the simple lesson that your connections to people are what get you through life, and that the journey to make these connections, however "up and down" it may be, is what makes life interesting, beautiful, and full of opportunities to grow.
Which “S” word best describes your show: SMOOTH, SEXY, SMART, SURPRISING?
Why should people come to FringeNYC this summer, rather than the beach, mountains, or the latest movie blockbuster?
Because there are TONS of smart new plays to see and amazingly talented and creative artists to support! And seeing live theatre is a completely unique and ever-changing, incredibly present experience! Also the energy generated by all these plays happening all over the city at the same time is so awesome! And don't you wanna say you were a part of it? Plus, I bet you've already been to the beach this summer and hiking a mountain right now would be too sweaty. And movies? Movies aren't live. So come to the Fringe!
