89.9FM WUCF, Orlando (interview)

I met Katie Ball in 2009 when she visited my rehearsal room for an interview on her show, “Art Beat”, on WUCF. “Art Beat” aired in Orlando where I was staging Bride of Wildenstein – the Musical a performance with puppets in which an aging socialite grows fur and claws to recapture the attention of her philandering game hunter husband. Katie did an amazing job capturing and presenting an authentic slice of my joy in the process of creating this performance.

“If you’re a fan of the gleefully debauched Rocky Horror picture show or the irreverent humor of South Park then you’re doubtlessly in for a treat.”
