The best part of doing summer theater is: The camaraderie of putting together a show in seven days, then being shot out of the cannon opening night and having the show come together is really exciting.
The most challenging job in show business I ever had was: Probably the one I am about to do. I am having to swing ten tracks in Mary Poppins. I am really excited for the challenge and pushing myself to see the bigger picture of the production instead of just the one or two tracks I am typically responsible for.
If I wasn’t an actor, I would be: Bored
Places, Intermission or Curtain Call? Places. I love the anticipation of starting a show; there is always something electric about walking to the stage and hearing the overture.
When I’m working out of town, my suitcase always has: My rollerblades and a wine key. Before my freshman year of college my godparents gave me a jar of coins that my cousin Tom had saved until he died in a car accident; they said to get something I really needed for college. 18 year old me decided rollerblades were the most sensible purchase to get around campus and I have been using them ever since to get a lay of the land when I travel. I’ve never been hurt on them so I thank Tom for that. The wine key is just for good luck.
