1. I heard a rumor that you don’t live in New York City seven days a week, and that you’re upstate. A lot of artists commute from upstate and are still a big part of the New York City theatre scene. Can you tell us why you made that choice and how you make it work for you?
2. You’ve talked about submitting a play something like 100 times to get 1 production. What are the ways you track submissions and do submissions that you find most helpful to keeping-up the pace on such a high output?
I am writing down in a notebook right now but in the past, I have just not tracked it in any way. I have an email reminder telling me every Monday to send stuff out. Sometimes that helps.
3. You’ve also mentioned you don’t apply for fellowships and the “golden opportunities” that so many playwrights apply for year after year and instead look for theaters who will dig your plays. How many productions would you say you had in the last years on average?
4. What have you learned from supporting other artists with your blog?
5. What do you have coming up in the city that we can go to and check out?
6. What are you writing now?
A new play. I like it. I think it will be good.
