…It is always wonderful to work with a playwright who has such a distinct voice such as Jay, while also being reminded of the greats while performing his work. Neil Simon comes to mind for sure. Performing as Nancy in his play was a challenge and a delight, and allowed me to immerse myself in physical comedy, a welcome challenge for any actor. His writing provided the necessary depth and wit for a comedic female character, without her being a pincushion, floosy  or a doormat. He wrote someone genuinely funny, in a deadpan sort of way, highlighting the incompetence of her 2 male counterparts, which allowed me to discover new things every night. What fun it was! Truly a highlight of my career.
