Playbill.com's series features actors commenting on their recent theatregoing experiences, what productions they're looking forward to and more.

Here, via email, we hear from writer and actor Qurrat Ann Kadwani, who currently stars in her award-winning play They Call Me Q at Off-Broadway's St. Luke’s Theatre.

What show recently impressed you?
I just saw Once, and it is such a sweet musical. I love the music so much that I want the album. I was so happy to see another SUNY Geneseo alum J. Michael Zygo in the cast! He invited me backstage, and I took pics onstage!

What production are you most excited to see?
I still need to see A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. I remember seeing Jefferson Mays in I Am My Own Wife, and I was so amazed, so inspired!

What play/musical would you most like to revive on Broadway, and which role would you want to play?
Proof. I would definitely play Catherine because she is so vulnerable, but she hides it behind an exterior of strength. That play gives me goosebumps.



What are your current/upcoming projects? 
I'm starring in a solo play that I've written, They Call Me Q, playing Off-Broadway at St Luke's Theatre. It's so fun playing 13 characters in an hour!
