Name: Libby Emmons

Hometown: the Northeast US, currently Brooklyn

Education: Sarah Lawrence undergrad, Columbia School of the Arts grad

Favorite Credits: most recently Puff Puff, at Festival of the Offensive, for which I won the Most Offensive award, in which I performed with Ali Ayala, and was directed by Michael Domitrovich.

Why theater?: Novels take too long and I'm a shitty painter. Also I like instant gratification, and you don't get that if your work is sitting on a shelf somewhere.

Tell us about Sticky?: Sticky. It's a 10-minute play series that blue box world has been producing since 2000. We started out in Philly, where our goal was to work with basically every young actor in the city, which we almost did. After a stint in some LES bars in the early oughts, fulfilling the same mission with the New York kids, we were in residence at Bowery Poetry Club until 2012, and are now at Beauty Bar in Brooklyn, thanks to Eliel Lucero. Just for the record, and in light of all this gender parity talk, it's good to know that Sticky has been 50/50 since 2000.

What inspired you to write I’m Not an Allegory (these are people I know)?: The inspiration of I Am Not an Allegory (these are people i know) was how I feel like the only way I can reconcile my perspective with the world is to assume that everyone looks at things they way I look at things. Otherwise I could never leave apartment.

What kind of theater speaks to you? What or who inspires you as an artist?: The kind that makes my heart feel like it will explode with love for the universe. The Holy Trinity.

If you could work with anyone you’ve yet to work with, who would it be?: When I want to work with someone, I find a way to work with them. As I meet new people, there'll be more people I want to work with.

What show have you recommended to your friends?: Fantasy Grandma is fantastic. I also love anything Rachel Klein has any involvement in at all, I mean if she's in the audience, I'll go.

Who would play you in a movie about yourself and what would it be called?: yeah I would play myself, and call it “Look Mom, I'm Famous”.

What’s your biggest guilty pleasure?: no comment.

What’s the most played song on your iPod?: I can't tell because settings, but top song this week is South Coast Plaza from The Julie Ruin.

If you weren’t working in theater, you would be _____?: Making shitty paintings.

What’s up next?: I'm working on a short film with Michele Travis, Kelly Stuart, Jimmy Pravasilis and Anna Van Valin, based on a play called Wormy, that I wrote for NY Madness this spring. I want there to be more Puff Puff, and there might be, but it's too soon to tell. I'm working on a screenplay with my husband David Marcus about our old friend, Chris Kelley, who died 15 years ago; it's called "The Fall". Also there's this other play that Brad Rothbart is dramaturing, but I'm not super ready to talk about it yet.
