1. Who or what inspired you to become a director/choreographer? I was always interested in choreography. Jack Cole, Gene Kelly, Michael Bennett and Michael Kidd were creators that I admired throughout my career. Their ability to tell stories, in an unusual way, was always very interesting to me. So, it seemed natural to move into directing.

2. Who is the one person you haven't worked with that you would like to? Mike Nichols.

3. What attracted you to "'S Wonderful"? What do you hope audiences come away with after seeing the show? It's unique way of telling five individual stories using Gershwin music. I would like them to walk away feeling like they experienced the Gershwin songs, that they know and love, in a different way.  Finding a new understanding of the music.

4. What has the Gershwins' music meant to you? What excites you about having the opportunity to choreograph their music? The Gershwin music is smart, sophisticated and joyous.  It provides an amazing platform for creativity.

5. What is your favorite part of the creative process in choreographing/directing a show? The rehearsal process. Where is your favorite place to practice your choreography on your own? Dance Studio.

6. What have you learned about yourself from being a choreographer/director? I've become more intuned with human behavior and it's effects. I've applied some of that to my personal life.

7. What did you learn from working with Kathleen Marshall and what was the best part of that experience? Kathleen is an extremely gifted and focused creator. She has a keen understanding of the theatre and what makes it work. She can put together a dance arrangement like no one else. 

8. What do you get from being a choreographer/director that you don't get from being a performer? I get to create the entire picture. As a performer you can only contribute your own performance.

9. What's the best advice you've ever received? As a Director/choreographer, you can't be everyone's friend. There are difficult decisions to make regarding casting, etc. and you can't get involved personally.

10. If you could dream about anyone while you sleep, who would it be? My mom.


11. Favorite way to spend your day off? Shopping for furniture, great lunch or dinner. Cooking.

12. Favorite way to stay in shape? Gym.

13. Favorite website?

14. Superman or Wonder Woman? Superman.
