What is your job on this show?
Do you like to read plays, or just perform them?
I LOVE to read plays-- a director can't be in rehearsal all the time, and a close second best is reading plays, visualizing them, and plotting ways to get people to produce them so I can direct them.
Complete this sentence: My show is the only one opening in NYC this fall that...?
Was written by a young Bulgarian poet/novelist and developed in rehearsal with the cast, the playwright, and the translator. Also it features the sexiest underwear model in all OOB.
Do you think the audience will talk about your show for 5 minutes, an hour, or way into the wee hours of the night?
I think they'll be talking about it for days! I know I was, after the play's initial reading at the Lark's hotINK fest of international plays...
Which famous New Jerseyite would like your show the best: Snooki, Bruce Springsteen, Thomas Edison?
Thomas Edison, because (like The Eyes of Others) he was very inventive. Ba dum bum!
Who are your heroes?
The great playwrights, actors, designers, and producers who make this job so thrilling.
