What is your job on this show?
Where were you born? Where were you raised? Where did you go to school?
I was born and raised in and around New York. And I went to Sarah Lawrence College where I studied and explored all different kinds of theater, art, and literature.
Have you been part of FringeNYC in the past? If so, how did you particpate? (Be specific! Name shows, etc.)
I performed in the 2010 Fringe show How Alfo Learned to Love Women. And it was really fun to meet and connect with people.
Why did you want to write/direct/produce/act in/work on this show?
I wanted to be apart of of this show because of the story. I felt a real connection to my character, Young Rosemary, and I knew right a way that I wanted to play her. And it's so exciting to play a scene where you begin to fall in love with someone and you feel that spark. That's wonderful to experience.
Which famous New Jerseyite would like your show the best: Snooki, Bruce Springsteen, Thomas Edison?
Bruce Springsteen! And I think Thomas Edison would like it. And Snooki, too, because she seems to like all different kinds of things.
Why should people come to FringeNYC this summer, rather than the beach, mountains, or the latest movie blockbuster?
Coming to the Fringe gives you the chance to partake in something that all of these different artists have come together to create, something that can only exist in that one moment. That's one of the most exciting qualities of the theatre, it's intangible.
