What is it like working on a brand new play? And having access to the playwright, Kurt McGinnis Brown?
Much like a father seeing his newborn baby for the first time, I hope that Kurt will feel that pride and relief when he watches BROKEN AND ENTERED.
What are some key characteristics of Wally? Why?
Wally is a dreamer, he is quick to run in the face of serious emotional conflict, and he is somewhat shallow. Throughout our story he is on a mission to rebuild himself into a new and better person.
Describe one of your favorite moments in theatre. How has it shaped who you are today?
In college I was in a play called MILL FIRE by Sally Nemeth. I (Champ) was dying of horrible burns and had my clothes cut off as my wife (Abby White) helplessly watched. Until that moment I didn't realize the power of live theatre. The heaviness of that moment and the impact it had on me, my fellow cast members and the audience will always be with me.
