FAVORITE SHAKESPEARE PLAY:

Hamlet

SHAKESPEARE CHARACTER THAT BEST DESCRIBES ME:

A healthy mix of the ladies from Much Ado. (i.e. Hero’s naivety, Margaret’s sarcasm with a splash of Beatrice’s cynicism)

FAVORITE SHAKESPEARE QUOTE:

“We are such stuff as dreams are made on”

FAVORITE PLAY THAT ISN’T BY SHAKESPEARE:

Proof by David Auburn

ALL-TIME FAVORITE ASC MOMENT:

The moment I began tearing up when I made eye contact with Chris Johnston during his monologue at the edge of the stage in Henry VI, Part 3.
