One of the hardest things about directing is just to be patient and remind yourself that you've been in Week 1 of a rehearsal process yourself, and you know what it feels like.
I'm hideously shy as myself, but on stage I can run around naked and bite the heads off fish.
I was an office secretary for a long time. A good secretary.
I've loved every minute of every hour I've spent doing theatre.
My profession is about as far away from growing up in southern Illinois as you can get.
Really, I'll go anywhere at any time to continue working in theater - it's a passion that I'm thankful I still have. It keeps me creative and on my toes and meeting great people. I can't imagine a better way of working than on a play.
Every part I get, I just think I'm so lucky. They're so hard to get, you know.
I almost never give interviews. It's not because I want to play hard to get. It's just that I never seem to have anything interesting to say.
I don't like working in front of a camera.
I like to play a wide range of characters. The more they're unlike me, the better I like it.
I was too practical to major in theater. Acting - what was I going to do with acting? There was no future in it.
I'm happy whenever I'm in a rehearsal room. I've always gotten all my energy and creativity in there.
I've been directed by other actors, and being an actor doesn't make you a good director.
Theater opened up a whole new world for me. It was a freedom I'd never known before.
