Invited by host Britty Marie to appear on her podcast as part of her director series, I talk about comedy verses drama, audition pet peeves, being a woman in the entertainment industry, how to protect ourselves from emotional damage as actors, how I made the transition from actor to director, why I dislike the classical musicals, and how I approach a script and rehearsal process to bring about a theatrical vision.
