Q) What is your role in EVERYBODY?
A) My role is Time.
Q) EVERYBODY can be performed a variety of 120 different ways based on its nightly casting concept. How has this rehearsal process been for you so far?
A) My role is not determined by lottery, but it has been very fun to see how different people perform the roles and make them their own.
Q) What have you learned the most while working with Erin and your cast mates?
A) I’ve learned that a role does not have to be performed the same way twice, and people have different performance styles.
Q) EVERYBODY features the ideas of Love, God, Kinship, Friendship, Death, Understating, etc. and personifies them as everyday people. Which idea is speaking to you the strongest recently?
A) I think Cousin speaks to me the most because I have very close relationships with my cousins. I love spending time with my cousins and I go to them if I have a problem.
Q) What about this production is special or why should audiences come see it?
A) This production makes you think about how you’re spending your life and if you want to change anything your doing. You want to enjoy every second of it.
