Tell us about The Mysteries: An epic, radical retelling of the entire bible in one 6 hour event, with 50 plays by 48 of the most exciting playwrights, put together by a brilliant directing/design team and performed by 54 of NYC's brightest talents. Plus there's dinner and dessert, too!

Describe The Mysteries in three words: Groundbreaking. Evocative. Transformative.

What's the wildest costume you wear in The Mysteries?:
It's a secret ;)

If you could be anyone from The Bible, who would you be?:
According to buzzfeed.com, Esther. Whom I know nothing about but Judy Garland played Esther in 'Meet Me in St. Louis' which was a seminal film in my life so I glean great meaning from this.

Which of the Seven Deadly Sins are you?: Pride

What's the biggest inside joke at The Mysteries?:

What's your favorite moment from The Mysteries?: Pentecost, even though I'm not in it, I just love it. I'm moved to sing, clap, laugh and cry, all backstage, all in one beautiful play.

What is the most rewarding part about being a member of The Mysteries?:
To be an emerging artist in NYC there has been no greater reward than the camaraderie I have found with every soul involved. The level of dedication is unparalleled and creates a unique environment for not only deep artistic growth but for deep exploration of the human condition. Juicy, eh?

Why should we come see The Mysteries?: Because we want you. We want you.
