A.: I thought that a disco background for a mystery-comedy would be fun. Disco music, fashions, and details would provide a novel approach in "dressing up" a plot. There was a lot of color, excitement, and theatricality in the disco scene, which all makes for great theater.
Q.: WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE PART OR LINE IN THE PLAY? WHY?
A.: The disco dance scenes--and the trivia contest--will provide a lot of fun for young actors.
Q.: WHERE DID THE CHARACTERS COME FROM? ARE THEY BASED ON PEOPLE YOU KNOW?
A.: Characters evolve in their own ways. I begin with an idea of a person or group of people, such as the sisters. From there, once a character has his or her own name, the personality begins to grow. I can't say these characters are based on anyone I know, but there are elements of people I know in them. If I had to pick one favorite character, I'd choose Perkins because he is in such direct contrast to all the other characters. He'd be fun to play on stage.
Q.: WHAT DID YOU TRY TO ACHIEVE WITH THIS PLAY?
A.: A good time for the director, the cast, and the audience. I hope I've achieved that.
