We hear a lot about inspiration – or Muse – that drives an artist. What inspires you?
I like to draw from real life experiences and morph them with current topics I find interesting.
Tell us about why you wrote this.
I don’t think they’re topics that have been talked about enough in this format. I think it’s very rare a play becomes more relevant as time passes, not less. And over the past year, I hate to say it but this topic just keeps coming up more and more.
What do you want most in your chosen profession? It’s OK to say “fame” or “wealth.”
I want to give everyone the chance to tell their side of the story.
Sally Field and Paul Newman both said of their profession… “it’s all I can do.” Is this all you can do?
I think anyone can do anything they set their mind to. But while I’m sure there are other things I could do, this is all I want to do.
Along those lines, if you couldn’t so this, what would you do?
I’m not sure. I honestly can’t imagine my life without theater.
How do you want [legit] history to remember you?
I want them to remember me for my ambition and professionalism. And hopefully success.
