Dr. Faustus, Session 2
Favorite Shakespeare Play:
Shakespeare Character that best describes me:
Benvolio (Romeo & Juliet) [Editor’s note: More accurately, the Duke of Suffolk from Henry VI, Parts 1 & 2]
Favorite Shakespeare quote:
“That’s good; ‘mobled queen’ is good.” – Polonius, Hamlet
Favorite Play that isn’t by Shakespeare:
The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde
All-time favorite ASC Moment:
In the 2017 Summer/Fall production if Much Ado about Nothing, when Claudio took off his mask to “reveal” himself after it was obviously him and an audience member gasped ridiculously. I died of laughter. That was the moment I was convinced that plays are better than movies.
