What made performing special for me – bringing the unreal to life.

There are two things that really attracted me to theater.  The first is showing people very real things they don’t often think about or get to experience.  These are things like the overpowering feeling of first love or the agony of making big mistakes (like we so often do in the thrall of first love).
