What’s your first theatre memory in Boston? My first audition was for Centastage. I cried really loud. It was fun.
What was your first job in theatre? I interned at 17 for a road house in CT. I was the worst spot-op 7 Brides for 7 Brothers has ever known.
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had before a show? I wouldn’t call any of them ‘best.’ I’m the brown rice or crackers before a show type.
What’s your favorite rehearsal snack? A nap. Does that count?
Do you eat before you go on stage or do you wait until after your performance to eat? I eat bland before and then pig out at intermission once my nerves have settled and I realize I’m starving. Then I pig out again after the show.
