Q: What was it about Motherstruck that made you want to come see it?
A: I write about parenting and motherhood for a lot of different websites, so this seemed interesting. A PR person reached out to me to look at it and write about it and possibly get to interview Cynthia Nixon.
Q: What kind of research did you do about the show before coming to check it out?
A: I didn’t want to know the play and come with any predispositions so I’m coming in blind. Otherwise I was going to have ideas about it. I know it is really intense and I just want it to hit me, then I will think about it, come up with some questions and hopefully interview Cynthia.
Q: How often do you cover theater?
A: This is actually my first show. I used to do restaurant reviews, but this is a shift. I don’t normally write about theater.
Q: Is there anything in particular that you will be looking out for as you watch tonight?
A: Probably the more emotional points, things that I can bring back to my audience. I know that it is about the experience of having a child alone and as a lesbian, which is something that I can identify with. I’m lucky that I have a partner who I am raising my two children with, but I am really curious to hear what that experience is like. I can’t even imagine what it is like raising one on your own. That’s what I think I will be focusing on and bringing back to my audience.
