On a playwriting website.
What is your most memorable bar experience?
I don’t know if bars are really that big a part of my life, honestly, in any kind of memorable way, although I’ve for sure spent my time hanging around in them. But I feel the really good nights never happen at a bar. I like a good dive, though, a dank, dark hole that is eerily quiet.
Beer, Wine, or Whiskey?
Different drinks for different reasons.
If you could share a drink with any figure from history who would it be and why?
I think it has to be Dorothy Parker, right? How could you not drink with Dorothy Parker?
Favorite theatrical experience?
I saw ‘Brief Encounter’ years ago in New York. It’s a production from an English theatre company called Kneehigh and Roundabout brought it over here. It was so theatrical and fun and magical. It remains the greatest experience I’ve ever had in a theatre and the gold standard for me.
