And Now for Kat West!

October 9, 2008

And now a member of Illyria’s creative team answers the most pressing questions of the moment.  Kat West, brilliant stage manager, joins in on the fun:

1.)  What has been the most challenging part of rehearsals for you so far?

Scheduling. No question. We have very talented and in demand actors so juggling all of their commitments outside of the rehearsals has been quite the puzzle.

2.)  What is your favorite moment in Illyria (either involving you or someone else)?

I always get goosebumps during “Save One” and always am blown away by “The Lunatic.”

3.)  Put your iPod on shuffle.  What are the first five songs that come up?
I don’t have an iPod. 😦
4.)  What is the strangest job you’ve ever had (non-theater related)?
Customer service at Gucci on 5th Avenue.
5.)  If I asked your mom to tell me one weird thing about you what would she say?
I always add 2 seconds to any time I put on a microwave to cook something. Don’t know why.
6.)  How closely can you relate with either your character or an individual story-line in Illyria?
I always relate to our guards and maids. The support team that makes the world of Illyria happen.
7.)  Can you juggle?  And if so what’s the largest quantity that you can juggle at a time?
Do schedules count? If so then the most I have ever juggled at once is 40.
8.)  Have you ever written and/or received a love letter from a secret admirer?
Someone once wrote a song for me but I didn’t realize it was for and about me until I was singing it in a concert.

9.)  Best part of being involved in theater?

The amount of positive creativity you can be around in a single day.

10) What color would your aura be?

Probably lilac or rose.

11) What is your favorite place to eat in the city?

Fatty’s Cafe in Astoria. Trattoria Dopo Teatro on 46th between Broadway & 6th.

Stay tuned for more answers to these questions and more!  Also look for video interviews with Chris and various members of the cast!  Until next time….
