brown Lần cập nhật cuối: 24/02/2014

Full name? Michelle Kritselis

Your position/role within the A NEW BRAIN family? Dramaturg

What does that mean/what do you do? Research stuff. Write stuff. Explain stuff.

In 5 words, how do you describe A NEW BRAIN? Neurotic, exploratory, life-affirming, joyful, soaring.

How would you describe Bill’s writing? Catchy but complex.

Fill in the blanks: ___central cardiac organ___ + ___melodic auditory reverberations___ = a song.

What was your must-see TV show as a kid? Mister Rogers and Sesame Street are PBS classics.

If you could be best friends with any cartoon character in the real world, who would it be? Why not Zoidberg? (Haha jk, never Zoidberg.)

Special hidden talent? I can eat, like, a SHOCKING amount of sushi in one sitting.

Something you’re REALLY bad at? Finishing my senten

Most played song on your iPod? This week: the Beatles’ “Baby, You’re a Rich Man”

Pop culture guilty pleasure? It’s over, but my answer is still American Horror Story: Coven. Stevie Nicks as a LITERAL WITCH who stops by to jam for no apparent reason? Sounds reasonable to me!

Three things you can’t live without? Portillo’s, yoga pants, and my iPhone.

“I’ll never understand why… people wear Ugg/imitation Ugg boots in the winter. I know they’re comfortable, but aren’t they fabric? Don’t they get ruined in the snow and salt?”


Come see Michelle’s research influence on William Finn and James Lapine’s A NEW BRAIN February 21 – March 9, 2014 at Rivendell Theatre. Ticketing and performance information can be found at The Brown Paper Box Co.’s site.
