Q: What do you like about seeing shows in a space like The Brick?

A: I live in Williamsburg, so it's very convenient. Usually, I have friends in the shows or it is a company that I’ve admired that has finally come to town, which is nice. I’ve been in Brooklyn for 7 years and the longer that I'm here, the less I want to ever go into Manhattan. A lot of the time, people think Off-Off and Indie are sub-par productions and they are not. Sometimes having less money brings out the creativity and ingenuity.

Q: What would you say to someone who thinks that Off-Off and Indie are sub-par?

A: I feel like almost every cool thing that you’ve probably ever seen started in a tiny space somewhere that was not on Broadway. It's affordable and if you want to be in any way involved in the community, this is the capacity. This is the place to meet people who are still creatively thriving. They are not inaccessible; they still have a well of desire to make things happen.
