1.Why must I Married A Nun be seen to be believed? My experiences have been post-modern transformations of sexuality. From experiences with a nun for 25 years to adventures abroad for decades, unusual travels and a message thru all this for people of all sexes and ages...make this a very unusual surprising evening!
2.What theatrical experience has really rocked your world? When I was 7 years old , my parents took me to the pre-Broadway opening of Oklahoma in Boston. I was wowed and so impressed that I knew then what I wanted to do in life. I danced and sang in front of the mirror in our living room for months afterwards.
3.When people ask if I consider myself more a playwright or an actor, I always respond with “Yes.” What’s your answer? I consider myself an actor first, as it has been my vocation for decades. Writing just began a year ago!
4.A big-budget Broadway musical based on the story of yourlife is in production. Sadly, the producers of D’yan! do not see you as enough of a draw to play the titular role. Which Hollywood A-lister gets the job? Carol Burnett is my choice, as I think she's just as crazy as I am.
5.What’s your favorite charitable cause or philanthropic organization? Why should everyone reading this rally round their flag? PETA! (Oh dear, I do wear fur coats. I've got 5 of them!)
6.You play 5 instruments and have performed in 9 languages. So what’s the one thing you still really want to do onstage? Sing, dance and shock and educate people thru all my adventures. No matter what age you are--L'amour n'a pas d'age: Love has no age and no bounderies.
7.How is life better at 77? Same shit, different day, and more of it.
