Hometown: Brooklyn

Most Recent Production (Last Seen In): The Winters Tale

Did you grow up with fairy tales? What were your favorites?

As a child I loved Three Billy Goats Gruff. What was most appealing to me about it was the troll who lived under the bridge. For some reason, I really related to that character and felt bad for him when he was thwarted at the end, despite his desire to eat the goats.

How familiar were you with the minotaur myth before working on this production?

My knowledge of the minotaur myth came mostly from the retellings in popular culture. I specifically remember a cartoon version of it in the animated Batman series.

Do you find it challenging to combine different writing styles with playing the same character?

I find it incredibly gratifying actually. It’s wonderful to play two extremely different versions of the same character and to see how they can inform each other.

What side of you will your friends and family see that might be unexpected?

The version of Daedalus in DUMBO might be somewhat surprising to my friends.

I usually don't trot around with a British accent in my day to day life.

Usually.
