Getting Lively, Lush & Local With: Melanie Garber

Who are you? Melanie Garber

What do you do? Director/Playwright/Actor/Artistic Associate for 11:11 Theatre Company

Where are you from originally? Peabody, MA

How long have you been working in Boston? Little over a year

What’s your earliest theatre memory? My Mom taped “Into the Woods” off of PBS when I was really little thinking I might like it. She was right.

What’s your first theatre memory in Boston? Child Wrangling at the Huntington for their production of “Fences.” Kenny Leon saying “Tell the story!” over and over.

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had before a show? Mussels and french fries.

What’s your favorite rehearsal snack? Swedish fish

Do you eat before you go on stage or do you wait until after your performance to eat? Eat before. Need the fuel!

The Boston Theatre Conference is focusing on the lively, lush and local aspects of our theatre community. What do you think? I think alliteration is a good thing. Boston is growing into its theatre identity. The town is small enough to know each other and large enough to generate great productions…both from the major theatre companies and the fringe scene alike.
