Bird in the Hand

nytheatre.com q&a preview by Crystal Finn

What is your job on this show?
actor.

What type of theater do you like most to work on?
I really honestly love working on new plays. It's scary to be responsible to a living and breathing playwright in the room--but there is something really fun about creating a world no one has seen before.

Complete this sentence: My show is the only one opening in NYC this fall that...?
has birds in flight!!!

In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?
"Bird in the Hand" is (I think) a play about home--remembering home and the ways in which home can be both forgotten and always present with us. Home is a place--in this case Miami, but it is also a feeling, a sense of nostalgia--it is memory.

Groucho, Chico, Harpo, or Zeppo?
always Harpo.

If you had ten million dollars that you had to spend on theatrical endeavors, how would you use the money?
I would give it to people who are making new work (like Fulcrum!) and let them make more of it!!
