What is your job on this show?
What type of theater do you like most to work on?
Really all theater, if it speaks to me. I really enjoy working on shows that I feel a connection to and shows that leave the audience wondering. I'm a huge fan of theatre for social change and educational theatre. I find peasure in being apart of a body of work that can change someones life.
If you're a New Yorker: why is FringeNYC an important part of the summer theater scene?
Its a wonderful opportunity to see new works! Theater is forever changing, so this festival gives viewers the chance to see the theatre artist of tomorrow. It's full of new paywrights, directors, actors ect...
What was the most memorable/funny/unusual thing that has happened during the development and rehearsal process for this show?
Well it's been fun making discoveries about our play as a group in rehearsals. As for unusual, I guess having dreams about the play and using my dreams for blocking ideas. That's our little secret!
Which cartoon character would you identify your show with: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Mickey Mouse, Marge Simpson?
How important is diversity to you in the theater you see/make?
Very. We all come from different walks of life, yet we share similar stories and feelings."Names of the Dead" is a prime example, the story of one man's life that could be experienced, lived and felt by all. Diversity is important to me in theatre because theater exist in a diverse world.
