What is your role on the staff of The Baltimore Waltz?
Dialect Coach. I love to hear the voices of the play come together!
Have you ever worked on a play by Paula Vogel before?
I’ve never worked on a Paula Vogel play professionally, but I spent some time studying How I Learned To Drive in college. Like Baltimore Waltz, she takes one of life's most difficult situations and opens it up with humor and gravity. It’s a play you can’t stop thinking about.
How many languages do you speak?
Just the one. English. I’m pretty good at speaking toddler, though.
Tell us about your siblings.
I have two amazing brothers. One is a chef in downtown Chicago, and the other works in finance in New York. They’re such different, lovely people. When my eldest brother studied in Germany for a year while he was in high school, we corresponded in letters - actual paper letters, with stamps. We could have easily done email, but for some reason we fell into the rhythm of putting pen to paper instead of fingers to keyboard. I still have all the letters he wrote, including a rather colorful drawing he made of his host family’s home. I treasure them as I treasure both my brothers. Brothers are awesome.
Have you ever been to Baltimore, Europe, or the hospital?
Europe is definitely the most memorable of the three because BREAD. And wine. And dinners with lovely people that last four hours.
