What is your favorite part of your job?

Meeting all the artists in each show.

Why is Two River Theater special to you?

I have met the most amazing caring individuals during my years at Two River. We truly are one big family.

What was your favorite production to work on and why?

My favorite production since I have been here was On Borrowed Time. The story was so sweet and wonderful. I also enjoyed meeting Robert Hogan. He is such a seasoned actor and a humble gentleman. Since meeting him we have seen him on so many television performances which are now in reruns.

If you could go back and work on a production before your time at Two River, what would it be?

My daughter, Kathleen, who is a French and Art Historian has been requesting a play written by Moliere, the French Playwright, The Imaginary Invalid. It has an interesting historical fact that Moliere was an actor in the play and actually died on stage. Kathleen loved our production of the School for Wives several years back.

What’s your favorite Red Bank restaurant and menu item?

A fun place is Boondocks Fishery in the summer. It a casual eating experience right on the river. On Tuesday it is two for one lobster dinners.

What’s your favorite thing to do/hobby outside of work?

Travel. We love traveling as a family. It is amazing that we still enjoy being together even as adults.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

On a trip to Iceland a few years ago with my daughter Megan and a dear friend, we hiked a glacier with crampon (spiked cleats), an ice pick and were tethered together. It was much more adventurous than I had ever expected but looking back I would not have changed anything. It was an experience of a lifetime.
