What is your job on this show?
What type of theater do you like most to work on?
I love to work on new texts by emerging artists.
Complete this sentence: My show is the only one opening in NYC this fall that...?
Showcases a bevy of beautiful, brave, talented, seasoned character actresses.
In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?
This show is about the complexity, vulnerability, humor and tenacity of women as written through the lens of playwright Frank Blocker! A refreshing evening of superbly written women characters that entertains and makes you think and above all, makes you clamor to see more of Frank Blocker's women and the worlds they inhabit.
Which cartoon character would you identify your show with: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Mickey Mouse, Marge Simpson?
If you had ten million dollars that you had to spend on theatrical endeavors, how would you use the money?
I would start a repertory company for New York City public high school students who are lacking funding in their schools for a performing arts program. Administrative, technical and performance positions would be held by students and overseen by teaching artists.
