What is your definition of misery?
Puking.

What is your greatest fear?
Death. And puking.

What was your first “real” job working in theatre?
SpotOp at Westport Country Playhouse for Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. I was 17. And clueless.

Are you a good at waiting tables?
No. Well, okay, actually I’m not sure because I’ve never tried it. I get really overwhelmed by lots of “stuff” so I’ve been too afraid to try it for fear I’ll break down sobbing in the back kitchen before I even get through the first night. But I am really good at ringing up coffee.

Which historical figure do you most identify with?
I don’t.

Who are your favorite heroes of theatre?
The ones I know: they are both heroes and real people. It is far easier to love them all the more when I know they have flaws and perspective within their greatness.

Who are your favorite heroes in real life?
My mom. She is a rock of personal triumph.

What do you consider the most overrated virtue?
Having a pristine house.

What do you consider the most underrated virtue?
Honor.

Your favorite painter?
Klimt.

Your favorite musician?
My daughter.

Your favorite playwright?
Gack. I don’t know. I should maybe read more plays and then I could answer this better. I’m usually drawn to older plays…as in, by dead people.

When and where were you happiest?
You know, once you put a child in the mix, it’s hard to identify single moments as “happiest” because life gets pretty happy with a little peanut around.

What do you most value in colleagues?
Honesty, forthrightness, a willingness to just try, because it might as easily be awesome as it could be awful, and the ability to forgive when the trying resulted in failing. I also like having someone around who will gladly fix my run-on sentences.

Is there a class in which you wish you had paid more attention?
Theatre History.

If you didn’t work in theatre, what would you do?
Physical Therapist.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?
I have a fantastic relationship with my family. We’re all friends, enjoy each other’s company, and value each other’s words and ideas.

What you’d like to be the world’s best at?
Navigating without a compass or a map. Just, be able to turn my head and know which direction I’m walking in and how to get there.

What book would you read more than once?
1984. And, um, Harry Potter.

Who would play you in a movie of your life? Why?
Jennifer Garner. Because then my life would have both awesome action sequences and really well-timed prat falls.

What sports teams do you follow?
I don’t.

Where would you like to spend a vacation?
Anywhere with a personal chef.

What car would you like to be seen driving around in?
That would mean admitting I have a car ego.

What book is currently on your nightstand?
The Hunger Games. I am Hamlet. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. Investing for Dummies.

If you could see a great production of a classic play, what would it be?
I’ve always wanted to see the Oresteia in full. Did I spell that right?

If you could travel back in time to visit or live in any time in history, when would it be?
Anywhere with swashbuckling pirates. I want to try being a pirate.

What actor will see in any project they do?
Anyone I know personally.
