Q – How long have you been involved in theater?

I have been acting since I could walk, much to the embarrassment of my folks because I used to climb onto the tops of tables and sing “You Light up my Life” by Ann Murray.

Q – What are some of your favorite productions?

No Exit, and any DARWiNS WAiTiNG ROOM show I am in, The Odd Couple, Background Check, Macbeth, Any One of Us: Words from Prison, and Elephant Hunt, all of which were at the Players’ Ring. And I will also be in the following upcoming productions at the Ring: Rush, Death and the Maiden and Hemingway’s Wife.

Q – Have you performed in the Vagina Monologues before?

Yes, I have.

Q – What made you want to be involved in V-Day this year?

This is the last time Back Alley will be involved, and if Joi and Danica are going out, then I’m going with them. This topic is very near and dear to my heart, and I can not imagine my life without it.

Q – Who is the most influential woman in your life?

Without a doubt, my Mom. She is the strongest, most intelligent, beautiful,independent, strong,and courageous woman I have ever known. And as a survivor herself, she has shown me what it means to not be defined by your experiences, but how to to let them shape you into being an actual strong, smart and independent woman.

Q – What or who inspires you?

My mother inspires me every day. My angel in heaven, aunt Terri. My dad, Lindsey Boyd-Robertson. My best friend, Constance Witman, my other angel in Heaven Tammy Belanger, and Joi Smith and Danica Carlson for letting me be a part of this incredible movement, which allows me to heal. I love these two ladies, and I don’t know what I’ll do now that Back Alley Productions will no longer be producing this show every year. G. Matthew Gaskell also inspires me on a daily basis. And whether he sees this or believes it, my brother, Josh.
