An nytheatre.com FringeNYC Q&A

Q: What is your job on this show?

A: Actor

Q: What type of theater do you like most to work on?

A: I am interested in working on new art which calls upon the collaborative process. It is a dream to have the opportunity to be a part of the genesis of a new play, create a role and participate in the first ever incarnation of a fresh and inspired piece.

Q: Have you been part of FringeNYC in the past? If so, how did you particpate? (Be specific! Name shows, etc.)

A: I performed in a Fringe musical last summer, called “Love in a Tub.” I am thrilled to be a part of the festival again, experiencing the process from a new angle and working on a completely different, equally original, piece.

Q: In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?

A: I think this show is about the deeply complex nature of growing up. It’s about two individuals who are on the brink of bridging the baffling gap between childhood and adulthood, starting to decipher love, reconcile pain, challenge the values of their parents and question their own identities. Written with a unique hand, this story deals with the most universal theme imaginable.

Q: Which cartoon character would you identify your show with: Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Mickey Mouse, Marge Simpson?

A: Daffy Duck. He’s an underdog; a little neglected, a little abused. He’ll get it.

Q: Why should people come to FringeNYC this summer, rather than the beach, mountains, or the latest movie blockbuster?

A: Everyone should come out to the Fringe Festival because supporting and witnessing the production of new theater is essential to the growth of art in New York. We live in the city of theater; to ignore the presence of new work is to overlook the importance of theater as a vital ingredient to our city. The shows are also affordable for young folks, and the Fringe experience is one that caters towards the youth, encouraging the emerging patrons of art, as well as the artists themselves. Movies are also really bad these days. You can hike mountains later.

An nytheatre.com FringeNYC Q&A

Q: What is your job on this show?

A: Actor

Q: When did you know you wanted to work in the theater, and why?

A: My father took me to NYC on a business trip when I was 14. We saw “Stones In His Pockets”, a two-man show about an entire Irish town in the throes of a Hollywood invasion. Before that, I’d acted for fun, but watching these men play several characters, moving me to laughter and tears, my vocation solidified. I’ve never been part of a more emphatic standing ovation.

Q: Why did you want to be part of FringeNYC?

A: This is my Fringe debut, and I couldn’t be happier. The Fringe is known for being the place where theater artists are allowed to really go for it. I plan to see as many other shows as I can!

Q: Do you think the audience will talk about your show for 5 minutes, an hour, or way into the wee hours of the night?

A: People will talk about SWEET TOOTH well into the wee hours of the night. This play asks the big questions…

Q: Which famous New Jerseyite would like your show the best: Snooki, Bruce Springsteen, Thomas Edison?

A: Based on most of his lyrics, Springsteen would like it the most. Edison is a thinker, so he would like it too. Snooki, I’m afraid to say I have somehow avoided ever even seeing her face, though her name comes up everywhere, and from what I hear she would probably fall asleep after 5 minutes of any play.

Q: Can theatre bring about societal change? Why or why not?

A: Yes. Clifford Odets’ play “Waiting for Lefty” incited immediate protests in the streets after curtain, in some cases. The unions were being bullied, buckling to pressure, and the working class suffered. While persons in the audience experienced these troubles, once put onstage they realized the were truly not alone. Eighty years later, and the story is familiar.
