I RECENTLY SAT DOWN WITH MYSELF AND ANSWERED A FEW QUESTIONS:
WHAT ARE YOU REALLY GOOD AT?
I can touch my nose with my tongue, I’m a darn good whistler and I recover quickly after falling down.
WHAT DO YOU REALLY STINK AT?
Putting on false eyelashes is not one of my top skills. Also, running. This makes me a prime target for zombies.
It’s almost impossible to embarrass me, so I love improv because the more risks you take the more it pays off…or you die and even then it can be amazing.
WHAT’S YOUR MOST MEMORABLE EARLY THEATER EXPERIENCE?
When I was younger I was called into replace Dorothy in a production of “The Wiz” the week before opening. (Yes, that “The WIZ” — long story). The Wizard’s cable snapped as he went up in the balloon and he went crashing down and broke his leg, the Scarecrow got hit in the head with a baseball bat, the band was drunk every night, and I accidentally flashed a church audience during a matinee. It was basically Waiting for Guffman on crack.
IF YOU COULD GO BACK AND TELL YOUR 20-YEAR OLD SELF ANYTHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I would tell myself that life’s way too short to worry about what anyone thinks about me. And floss more often.
