Name: Michelle Ireton
What is your current project? Whiskey Pants: The Mayor of Williamsburg
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
HERE Arts Center. This is a very immersive piece, and having a space that allows us to stage the show as such and bring the audience into the action is so important to the overall experience and style of this musical. This isn’t the kind of show where you want a clear fourth wall kind of separation between actor and audience, and having a unique space where that line can get blurred will really impact the way people experience these characters and their stories.
What’s next for you?
I’ll let you know when I do!
What is the name of the last show you saw?
Any advice for your peers?
Patience. Persistence. And then more patience.

The list of people who need thanking would never begin to fit in this bio, but a few honorable mentions include Mom and Dad, for their unconditional support; her friends and roommates, both past and present, for their exceptional tolerance; and Mind The Art Entertainment for this extraordinary experience.
