What inspired you to branch out from screenwriting into playwriting?
There’s no greater thrill than putting your characters and words in front of a live audience. You might even call it an addiction that’s hard to break.
Of all your work, what accomplishment are you proudest of?
I wrote and directed the play Women are Crazy Because Men Are A**holes, which has run in New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Chicago almost nonstop over the past five years. We started out at a 66-seat theater in Los Angeles in 2011 and kept moving up in size and prestige in theaters until we played at the legendary Cherry Lane Theatre in New York last summer.
How are you inspired by live entertainment?
There’s an energy in live entertainment that no advancement in technology will ever replace. It’s a shared dialogue between the audience and the actors, both giving and receiving, that will remain vital to the human experience until the end of time.
