Playbill.com's series features brief chats with actors commenting on their recent theatregoing experiences, what productions they are looking forward to and more. Here, via email, we hear from Olivier Award-nominated actress Sarah Goldberg, who is currently starring in Broadway's Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning Clybourne Park.

What show recently impressed you?
Uncle Vanya at Soho Rep. I, too, am in the Sam Gold/Annie Baker fan club — add Dr. Chekhov into the mix and you get theatre heaven. It was a stunning production with an incredible ensemble cast, the kind of thing that raises the bar.

What production are you most excited to see?
I can't wait to see Once. The music is beautiful, and everyone seems to be fizzy for it.

What play/musical would you most like to revive on Broadway, and which role would you want to play?
I would love to play Kate Keller in All My Sons, but guess I have to wait a few years...so, I would happily settle for Ann Deever.



What are your current/upcoming projects?
I am on 406 Clybourne Street for the next few weeks playing Betsy and Lindsey in Clybourne Park.

Goldberg was nominated for the 2011 Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actress when she created the roles of Betsy and Lindsey in the 2011 Olivier and Evening Standard Award-winning production of Clybourne Park (a separate resident production not related to the Broadway staging) at the West End's Wyndham's Theatre.  A native of Vancouver, Canada, Goldberg studied drama in London before starring there in productions of Alexi Kaye Campbell's Apologia at the Bush Theatre and Six Degrees of Separation at the Old Vic. Goldberg was last seen by New York audiences in the Roundabout Theatre Company production of Look Back in Anger. Read more about her in the Playbill Vault.
