Serious Money

nytheatre.com q&a preview by Tara Giordano
June 19, 2013

What is your job on this show?
Actor.

What is your show about?
Serious Money is a timely satire about greed, power, and politics, set in London‘s financial district in the late 80‘s.

What type of theater do you like most to work on?
I like to be a part of productions that are generous of spirit, that inspire intellectual and emotional dialogue, that tell a great story and shed light on the truth. Luckily, this play does all of that.

Complete this sentence: My show is the only one opening in NYC this summer that...?
...takes on Caryl Churchill at her best, largely in rhyming couplets.

Is there a particular moment in this show that you really love or look forward to? Without giving away surprises, what happens in that moment and why does it jazz you?
There are many moments in this show that I look forward to, but one is when the entire company erupts into song and dance. Alicia Evancho's choreography is bold, sharp, and hilarious (in the good way), and it doesn't allow us to hold anything back.

Which “S” word best describes your show: SMOOTH, SEXY, SMART, SURPRISING?
All four!

Who are your heroes?
My teachers, my parents, my dearest friends. Also Julia Louis-Dreyfus. She's killing it on Veep.
