Q: What drew you to your role?
A: As the male swing, I am covering all three of the ensemble men’s parts. What’s really exciting about this production is how much work Jess and the actors have done to differentiate between the three men. From delving into the history of factory life and the specific jobs of each worker to establishing unique relationships with each other and the ladies in the ensemble, there’s a lot of specificity to each character. It’s very satisfying for an actor to be given the freedom to really chisel away at what could be more generalized and find nuances underneath.
Q: How was the process for you?
A: The rehearsals I’ve attended have been filled with laughter, which is always a good sign. It’s been clear clear throughout this process that maintaining the element of fun is high on everyone’s to-do list, right along with working efficiently and effectively.
Q: Where do you hail from?
A: Rochester, New York!
Q: Do you wear pajamas? If so, what kind of pajamas?
A: Ha! For Christmas this year both my mother and my step-mother bought me the same pair of pajamas, which had these labels on them that read “Exceptionally Soft!” and once I’m home from work, chances are good I’ve slipped into them to bum around the house in exceptional comfort.
Q: What do you love about working at TMTC?
A: The people! I’m very grateful to be working with folks who know what needs to be accomplished and can make it happen swiftly and efficiently, but all the while keep spirits high and maintain a sense of fun very present in the room.
