How did you get involved with LTA's The Tale of the Allergist's Wife and what are your goals as an assistant producer?
I'm a glutton for stretching my time thin -- I'm kidding! I'm actually friends with co-producer Jay Cohen outside of theatre and he approached me with the possibility of becoming a producer-in-training. I was both honored and thrilled to be asked, so I immediately said "yes." I must have been half asleep because I said "yes" to being not only assistant producer but also co-stage managing and helping with set construction.
I'm personally trying to make it through my first LTA show alive! My goal is to have the story told in a way that the audience understands and connects with. And let none of the mistakes be my fault!
What do you hope the audience takes away from this show?
I would love for the audience to walk out of the theatre thinking "gee, I thought my life was weird, these people are plain crazy!" This play is nothing short of "Frasier" category humor: intellectual references mixed with modern day humor tactics.
