What made you want to be a part of Loot?
Loot is a really funny script with so much potential when it is put on stage. I am a big fan of physical comedy, and this script is filled with opportunity to explore that.
How do you feel about your character? Do you relate to them at all? Share any of the same traits?
I really enjoy playing Hal. It is an interesting balance finding the humor in the scenario while keeping the truth and integrity of who he is. Also, we both love to frequent brothels, so that helps.
What’s been your favourite part of the rehearsal process so far?
My favourite part of rehearsal is playing with the other actors. Every time we run through a scene, new things are discovered. Everyone is willing to allow things to evolve and explore. It may not be right, but we won’t know until we go there.
What’s your favourite thing to have come out of the 1960s?
Non dairy creamer
Are you working on any other projects at the moment/ What might we have seen you in recently?
Recently was in a production of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” I am also in a folk rock band called “People Walking By” We play all the time so check us out! @people.walking.by
Why should people come out and see the show?
It’s a show with British accents, money, and death. What could be better? Certainly beats sitting at home swiping through dating profiles. Unless those profiles include British accents, money, and death. Then you’ve got a hard decision to make.
Anything else you want us to know?
The dot on top of the letter ‘i’ and ‘j’ is known as a tittle.
You can see Kevin onstage March 8-17, 2018 at the Alumnae Theatre.
