SCARIEST PART OF AN AUDITION: There isn't one. Auditions aren't scary at all.
BEST PART OF AN AUDITION: wow, this is going to sound so arrogant, but I don't mean it like that. Walking into the theatre and having people whisper like they know that you're going to get cast no matter what.

ON A SCALE OF 1-10 HOW IMPORTANT IS GETTING PAID: For what, acting? Pssh, whatever, this is a hobby.

WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE PERFORMANCE: Closing day of Hansel and Gretel, I planted a big deep red glittery kiss on some bald guy's head in the front row. That was great.

WHAT'S SOMETHING EMBARRASSING OR UNEXPECTED THAT HAPPENED TO YOU WHILE ON STAGE: Two things, both during H and G. Barry as the dad was posing as a tree on stage right, and I have this huge ice cream cone lookin' wig on, and he's supposed to tap me on the head with a tree branch. The branch got caught on my wig and pulled the thing almost completely off, so I spent the time in the oven trying to fix it, with no light. Second, all I have to say is my little girl knows her lines "It's a pop-lar tree!"

WHO IS THE MOST DIFFICULT PERSON (ON STAGE OR OFF) THAT YOU HAVE EVER WORKED WITH: ha ha ha, that's a straight up tie, Jack and Isaiah.

EVER BEEN NAKED ON STAGE?: Not physically, but emotionally, yes.
