What are your preshow/postshow rituals?
Pre: Water. Post: Beer.

What’s your favorite thing about San Francisco?
Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, the free bluegrass festival every fall in Golden Gate Park!

If you weren’t an actor, what would you be?
A weather girl or a ballerina.

What was your most memorable Halloween costume?
I was a swimming pool in fifth grade. Blue wig, depth markers in puff paint (1–5 feet) all the way up my body, pool rules on my back, and to finish it off, a diving board (roof shingle) stapled to my headband with a Ken doll hot glued to the edge. So theatrical.

What is your favorite moment in Elektra?
The Tutor’s speech [delivered by Anthony Fusco as The Tutor] and the beautiful music Theresa [Wong, the onstage cellist] plays underneath it.

What is the most outrageous thing you’ve done to take revenge on someone?
Poisoned gazpacho. A dish best served cold.
