What is your job on this show?
Who are your heroes?
I try not to have heroes as that would mean putting someone on a pedestal. I admire many people- some famous, most not. I admire people who have big hearts; who care about the world around them and are passionate about something and doing it well.
If you're not a New Yorker: what are you most looking forward to doing and seeing (apart from the festival) while you're here?
Central Park. I love it. I'm also looking forward to blowing my diet and sinking my teeth into a really good pizza.
Why did you want to write/direct/produce/act in/work on this show?
I read the script by John Feffer. Before my audition Doug Krehbel(our director) sent me a copy, and after reading it knew that I had to be a part of this production. Luckily for me he agreed.
Groucho, Chico, Harpo, or Zeppo?
Harpo. I like the other guys as well but he played a mean harp and was funny without saying a word. Groucho would probably love this show.
If you had ten million dollars that you had to spend on theatrical endeavors, how would you use the money?
I'd help as many small theatre companies as I could. So many companies doing wonderful work struggle just to find a venue that they can afford. So maybe I'd buy or build a venue that as many companies as possible could call home. Make it one less thing for them to worry about.
