What about Foot of Water (opening at Single Carrot this week) has you most jazzed?
Well it’s been a while since we’ve done a world-premiere original show, and it’s been a blast go get back into it. It’s high-energy, high-stakes, sexy, and there is A LOT of water. What’s not to be jazzed about?
Have to ask. Talk to us about the nick name.
One of my closest friends in the world started calling me Moose when we were about 15 because she thought it was (and is) hilarious, and the rest is history. I have a lot of Moose-related stuff. My fave is a note pad that says, “Things I Moose Do”.
Who is your artistic inspiration?
I am obsessed with Erma Bombeck and have been since I was 11 years old. I didn’t go to school when she died, I was so distraught. I was the only middle schooler making jokes about home-making and Howard Cossel.
Of the characters you’ve played at SCT, who is most like you?
I’ve definitely got a bit of both Constance from Tragedy: a tragedy and Mrs. Sorby from The Wild Duck in me, but at the end of the day, I am Linda The Chicken (from this past winter’s MilkMilkLemonade) to my core.
Favorite thing about Baltimore City?
The fact that artists just starting out can have meaningful conversations with leaders in higher education, government, and the arts. Because folks like Kwame Kwei-Armah, Fred Lazarus, and Doreen Bolger (and many more) practice what they preach and are out, experiencing all of the art and culture this wonderful city is serving up on a platter. That and being able to tell the seasons by the volume of carry-out chicken bones in the street.
Definitely our lucky number. The number 22 has followed us since our Colorado days and it’ll follow me all through life.
Challenge: Offer SCT patrons and friends and deal, right now. Go.
Okay, if you snap a photo of yourself outside the Station North area rocking any Station North related apparel and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org, I’ll mail you a mini-SCT care package.
