brown Lần cập nhật cuối: 18/09/2012

Full given name: Anna Elizabeth Schutz (still haven’t changed my name since getting married)

Where you were born/where you were raised: Born in Evanston and raised in Skokie

Your position within the Godspell production team? I’m Production Manager and Stage Manager

What does that mean/what do you do? I’m in charge of all of the logistical and technical things for the show. I do things like booking space and writing notes to running the show once it’s up.

What’s surprised you most about Godspell‘s rehearsal process so far? How awesome it is to walk into a room of actors tuning their guitars and practicing piano before rehearsal starts.

Something you’re REALLY bad at: Whistling & winking

Current local show you have been recommending to friends: Well it was The Great American Trailer Musical until it closed, since my husband Phil Martin, philmartindrums.com. [SHAMELESS PROMOTION] played drums for it. Now I’m recommending Night Blue’s Avenue Q playing at Stage 773. I hear the drummer for that show is amazing and quite handsome.

Favorite Chicago neighborhood: Lakeview

Favorite musical: Company

Favorite play: Oh boy… from a pure enjoyment viewpoint the Bard’s Twelfth Night

Your personal idols: We’re not supposed to have idols according to the research I’ve done for this show.

MAC or PC? Obviously, Mac

Most played song on your iPod: “Keep Your Head Up” by Andy Grammer

Must-see TV show(s): Mad Men

Last good movie you saw: Just re-watched Midnight in Paris which is one of my favorite movies

Performer you would drop everything to go see: Audra McDonald

Pop culture guilty pleasure: Project Runway & Rihanna

Three favorite cities: New York, Honolulu, and Paris

Three things you can’t live without: Family, chocolate, and my iPhone

“I’ll never understand why…”: You park in a driveway.
