What was your most rewarding role? That is a toss up between Debra in The Smell of the Kill, and Sarah Jane Moore in Assassins. Sarah Jane was a
dream role in a dream show.
Worst onstage mishap: Again, it's a toss up. When I was playing Tzeitle in Fiddler, I stood from a kneeling position and pulled my skirt off. Ah, children's theatre. But in Merrily We Roll Along, the zipper to my strapless broke open the moment I walked out on stage. Boy, I'm glad you didn't ask me about my worst off-stage mishap.....
Most Terrifying Moment: My first stage kiss. Or maybe it was when I had to be lifted by 5 men in the air in Crazy for You.
Funniest performance anecdote:
Misspelling the name Charlie Brown on stage - we forgot the
Theatrical High point:
Seeing Darius deHaas singing Judas in a scene from Superstar. It moved and inspired me in a
way nothing ever has before or since.
You as a performer in three words: trusting, vulnerable, playful
What do you want the audience to know about the current
show? It's ok to laugh.
Tell us three things about you
that have nothing to do with theatre:
I used to run a not-for-profit animal rescue.
I'm left handed.
I would give up almost everything to be a storm chaser - I LOVE watching tornadoes. You know, as long as I'm not in the path of one.
What's your Actor's Nightmare?
The typical performance dream - I have to go on stage and have no idea what I'm doing, or even what show I'm in. That and not getting cast in real life, because I'm not good enough.
