Q: What was it about this show that made you want to see it?

A: Michael John LaChiusa is a brilliant lyricist and composer and I just want to see everything he does.

Q: What is it that you like about the way that he writes music?

A: It is complicated and challenging for the performers, but in a way that makes it really interesting and special. He is also funny. He is very quick witted.

Q: It sounds like you’ve maybe been to The Public before—what do you like about seeing theater here?

A: Once or twice or maybe 300 times. Knowing someone that works here it is very helpful… I‘m a huge fan of the work that The Public does. I really appreciate that it is rooted in social justice and that is a really big part of how I operate my day-to-day life. I’m excited by the values of this theater because of that. My wife also works here—so I like to support it!
