What keeps you acting/ inspires to you perform?
Theatre is my favorite thing. It's my favorite way to learn, reach people, and share stories and experiences. While I rely on the internet as much as the next millennial, I also believe that there is an urgent need for people to get out from behind their screens and interact in person. Theatre has the power to ask hard questions, and the epilogue of any show is the audience's discussion after. I love being part of this process.
My most rewarding experience on stage?
My best overall acting experience thus far was performing in CLYBOURNE PARK at Shadowland Theatre in Ellenville, N.Y. back in summer 2015. It was a challenging text, I had two roles that were difficult in different ways, and I thrived on the opportunity to step up my game to match the potential of the work itself and the amazing company around me. Pre-professionally, one of my favorite roles to this day was back in the Johns Hopkins University Theatre as the Player in ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD. Few professional companies would cast a female actor in that role, and I loved getting to explore.
How does it feel to be in Venus immersive space?
I am having a blast putting this women-driven series on its feet with such creative and passionate artists! I love Venus's mission statement and the intimacy of the space. I only wish there were more seats for the opportunity to share these stories with more people!
