Favourite moment so far in rehearsals?

She seemed pretty into it at the time.

I personally really love the very first rehearsal where everyone is in the room reading the play of the first time, sharing ideas and talking about prospective designs concepts etc. 

And it was all downhill from there?

Well, right after the read, Michael wanted us to re-create a photo that was taken of the Star Wars cast during their first table read. As soon as he mentioned the idea, I knew I was in trouble. Haha, I’m kidding, the whole process has been fun.

... Let's move on. How is this production different?

We are incorporating a whole lot of really interesting and eclectic elements into this production from many different sources, which will bring a whole new dimension to a traditional story. I think that is really exciting.

Have you ever fallen in love with someone you shouldn’t?

Of course. Who hasn’t?

Random questions! Number of productions of The Servant of Two Masters you’ve seen? 

At least four.

If you could only choose one thing to eat for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Cereal. Specifically Cheerios. Or strawberries.
