What’s the hardest part about telling a story this big with a small cast in a small room?
Trying to find enough room for the solid gold the cast brings into the rehearsal room is pretty difficult! I’m enjoying the challenge of choosing which brilliant acting choices best serve the story (or more accurately, watching in awe and taking copious notes as Brad Raimondo does this)!
What’s your favorite aspect of your work on the play (so far)?
Each member of the Dreamscape team shows intense dedication and sincere affection for the work, and I spend a lot of time going “damn, that’s perfect!” in production meetings. It’s wonderful to feel valued as an artist and to be able to go high-concept with questions and suggestions.
What are you most excited for the audience to experience when they come to The Improbable Fall, Rise & Fall of John Law?
I think I’m most excited for them to experience all the accents – the soundscape of this piece is totally engrossing!
If you became a millionaire overnight what would you do with your newfound wealth (besides donating generously to your favorite non-profit theatre company, of course)?
I would pay off my student loans, let my boyfriend advise me on investment options, buy my parents a house by the beach, take my best friends on a dope vacation, and stop subletting rooms from people on Craigslist and get my own lease on a Manhattan apartment!
