What show recently impressed you?
Blood and Gifts. Just an incredible play that, while political, still captured the characters' humanity with such specificity and beauty. I love plays that aren't afraid to be about something.

What production are you most excited to see?
I'm excited to see the revival of Death of Salesman. Besides being a brilliant play starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, it will give me a chance to see Linda Emond in an amazing role. She's by far one of the best actresses I've ever seen. Her performance in Tony Kushner's Homebody Kabul was mind-blowing.

What play/musical would you most like to revive on Broadway, and which role would you want to play?
I'm not sure if I have a revival I've been pining to do. I really love working on new plays. Collaborating with a playwright to create a role is pretty hard to beat.

What are your current/upcoming projects?
I just finished filming "GCB," a series for ABC which starts airing March 4th, 10 PM. It was written by Robert Harling, speaking of wonderful playwrights...
