Punk or Provocateur with...Malloree Hill
Hometown: San Antonio, TX
Tell us about The Roaring Girl: Well, in a nut shell: Comedy, dirty jokes, love story, sword fights, songs, cross dressing, tobacco, and fancy bowing.
Describe The Roaring Girl in 3 words: Sex, Swords, Laughs
Who do you play in The Roaring Girl?: I play Moll Cutpurse
Describe your character in 3 words: Passionate, Alluring, Bad-ass
Which company member is most likely to be a roaring boy or girl?: Am I allowed to say myself? Is that weird?
Most likely to get in a brawl?: Rebeca. Something about her tells me she could take us all down if she wanted.
Who’s the fanciest?: Jacob. The boy dresses way better than I ever will at rehearsals and brings Roses to people on their birthdays. ROSES.
What is the best thing about being a part of The Roaring Girl?: Working with such a wonderfully playful and supportive cast. And swords.
What is your favorite moment in The Roaring Girl?: Oh I can't pick just one. Please don't make me.
Why The Roaring Girl now?: I mean, why not?
Punk or Provocateur?: Personally?... Punk.
Have you ever performed in rep before? What are the challenges/struggles?: I have performed in Rep before. I think a challenge with rep work is maintaining the show during those periods when you don't have performances. You have to keep the show alive in that downtime so that when you come back everything still runs smoothly.
What are you most excited to see in the other play?: The band! The dynamic of all the instruments and the characters, their relationships to their instruments and each other, I think it's going to make for some really cool theater.
Why should we come see Punks and Provocateurs?: Because theater is an amazing, collaborative, exciting, immersive art, that allows you to experience a story communally and viscerally, something we are loosing in this age of smart phones and tablets. All over New York City there is amazing theater and art happening, Broadway isn't all there is, and these productions are very good and very accessible. Plus, both shows are just plain cool and you will have a great time. There really is no reason not to come.
