What is the name of the last show you saw?
1984. What a mind-blowing production.
Any advice for your peers?
I got an incredible piece of advice a couple years ago. Your ego has nothing to do with your work. So both compliments and criticism you might get are not for you, but for that little artistic muse in your brain 🙂
