What is your current project? The Box Show
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
I am performing this show at The People’s Improv Theater, which is a venue that celebrates creative comedy. It’s a great fit for my wacky little show, and the PIT has a great artistic and administrative team. The Box Show is a one woman show in which I perform over 25 characters from inside a cupboard. The cupboard opens to reveal: a drunken couple mid-fight in Las Vegas, the entire Greek army inside the Trojan Horse, a lonely giantess, a lost pope and so much more! The space is limited, but the comedic possibilities are endless. The New York Times hailed it as “the most purely delicious production …relentlessly inventive…a paragon of Fringe form”, and we won the Overall Excellence for Solo Performance from FringeNYC and Best Comedic Script from the United Solo Theatre Festival. Come check it out!
What’s next for you?
I am writing a couple of new pieces (top secret), and I am excited to act in other people’s projects again!
What is the name of the last show you saw?
“Diva: Live From Hell” by Sean Patrick Monahan. It was great!
Any advice for your peers?
Come see the show! 🙂 Also, never stop hustling.
