The interview with the Interval is up. I got to talk with PLUS Lakisha Michelle May of “Sojourners” at NYTW, Chinasa Ogbuagu of “Sojourners” and “Her Portmanteau” at NYTW, and Sarah Street of “Rebel in the Soul” at the Irish Repertory Theatre -- all about working off-broadway, premiering new plays, and what it's like to be a female performer!

Theatre really is our one chance to kind of get in on the ground floor and bring what we have to the table, outside of our craft, in terms of our opinions. I think it’s the one time where you have all the hats. There’s different ways to solve problems in a play. If there’s a problem with the play, and the playwright isn’t around to solve it, you have to solve it as a director or you have to solve it as an actor. When you have a playwright in the room, you get all those three hats, and you get to be like, ‘Oh, okay, this moment is not really quite what we want it, is it the playwright, is it the director, is it the actor who has to solve it’” To me, that’s very exciting, and sometimes it’s a combination. It’s also the suspense of, ‘Does this play work? Do people get what we’re putting out?’ It’s always really rewarding when you have that first showing and you’re like, ‘Oh my god, they get it.’
