What’s your favorite line from a play?
You could seriously pick almost any line from ARCADIA and I could claim it as favorite, but if I had to pick one: “We shed as we pick up, like travellers who must carry everything in their arms, and what we let fall will be picked up by those behind. The procession is very long and life is very short. We die on the march. But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it.”
What play or production changed your life?
I did a production of ASSASSINS in college, and the experience of that production, as much as the play itself, really showed me how magical and inspiring the rehearsal process can be. It isn’t something you suffer through to get to performances, it has magic of its own.
Is there anything you still dream of doing?
Calling the opening ceremonies of the Olympics.
What is your best escape?
A good book.
