Spotlight On...Rosie Bitts
Hometown: Victoria BC
Select Credits: Writer/performer: Stories of Love and Passion and The Fabulous Miss Rosie Bitts; Author: Erotica serial "The Lady Corsairs"
Why theater?: I love theatre because it transports people to a different place. I love being the person who facilitates that magic happening.
Tell us about Stories of Love and Passion: Stories of Love and Passion has been a real work of love. I wanted to tell stories that are real, raw, and uncensored but in a palatable and entertaining way. I love that it is a mixture of what is funny, heart wrenching, and juicy about passion and love.
What inspired you to write Stories of Love and Passion?: I was inspired by the beauty of everyday stories about passion from people's lives. I love the juiciness that comes from our human experiences.
What kind of theater speaks to you? What or who inspires you as an artist?: I love fringe and on the edge theatre. The artists that most inspire me are the ones that are taking risks and creating something new.
What’s your favorite show tune?: "I Don't Know How To Love Him" (Jesus Christ Superstar).
If you could work with anyone you’ve yet to work with, who would it be?: I would love to work with Joey Arias. I really appreciate Joey's work.
Who would play you in a movie about yourself and what would it be called?: Chloe Sevigny (even though we have completely different body types) and it would be called "The Woman Who Loved Too Much".
What show have you recommended to your friends?: The last show I recommended to my friends was Bob Brader's work "Spitting In The Face of The Devil".
What’s the most played song on your iTunes?: "St. Louis Blues" (Louis Armstrong).
What’s your biggest guilty pleasure?: That's not for public consumption.
What’s up next?: I plan to continue touring Stories of Love and Passion over the next two years as well as working on a new comedy cabaret show with my musical partner Jeff "Saucy Fingers" Poynter.
