If you could go back in time and catch any Broadway show, what would it be? The Night of the Iguana/ The Boys in the Band/ Moose Murders
Current show you have been recommending to friends: Love Child, created by Robert Stanton and Dan Jenkins. Unfortunately not running anymore. I would have given my left nipple to have created that show.

How you got your Equity card: WASP and Other Plays at The Public.

Worst costume ever: The paper bag with a Slinky glued to the front in How The Elephant Got His Trunk (first grade). Also the best.
