Charlie Victor Romeo q&a preview by Patrick X Daniels
September 20, 2012

What is your job on this show?
I'm the creator/producer/director/performer among other things....

Do you like to read plays, or just perform them?
I prefer to perform plays... the work includes reading so I get that as well. It is frustrating to read a play without working on it. When i read something, I automatically think of production details which detracts from the enjoyment of just reading.

Complete this sentence: My show is the only one opening in NYC this fall that...?
has just been filmed with the intention of making a stereoscopic 3D movie!

In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?
Charlie Victor Romeo is about heroism and struggle. Audiences will leave the theater emotionally drained but hopefully a little more knowledgeable about what pilots actually do. Knowledge is power.

Which famous New Jerseyite would like your show the best: Snooki, Bruce Springsteen, Thomas Edison?
The Boss, of course.

If you had ten million dollars that you had to spend on theatrical endeavors, how would you use the money?
I would fund 200 small productions, 50 grand or so each. The new stuff, the small stuff, the weird stuff needs attention. These sources are our future, and they should be funded.
