Who do you play in The Baltimore Waltz?
I play the Third Man, so I'm also the set/dress/environment changer. Also, I get to have fun.
Have you worked on a play by Paula Vogel before?
I've read a few of her plays and saw a billion students doing her as scene-work in college, though I've probably absorbed more about her through her former student, Sarah Ruhl. My favorite may have to be Hot 'N Throbbing, just because it deals with such a difficult, unsavory subject and I love imagining it through the lens of its original director, Anne Bogart.
How many languages do you speak?
I speak HTML, ASCII, meme, some French, and various languages that babies apparently understand. So let's go with 5+. And don't underestimate the importance of BODY LANGUAGE.
Tell us about your siblings.
1 sister. There's a line in this show about "bribing" your siblings: I definitely have a lot of memories of shoving presents in her lap or trying to make her laugh in the backseat bucket seats of our Ford Windstar minivan (RIP 1994-2004). The worst is that I was always the reason she was crying in the first place.
Have you ever been to Baltimore, Europe, or the hospital?
No east coast trips or flights across the Atlantic pond (I crossed the other one), though actually I worked in a hospital for a few years. I think it's memorable because nothing will make you an "old soul" as a teenager like wheeling around new mothers, whiny ER inpatients, or dying people while chugging Maxwell House coffee all day.
See Justin Harner in The Baltimore Waltz, opening January 20th.
