Get to know Angela! :
TCTP: Sisterhood is one of the main themes of our show. Do you have any siblings?
AF: Yes, one brother. No sisters. Trust me, I've been sad over this my whole life.
TCTP: Jo from Little Women is considered to be a classic literary character, who is your favorite?
AF: It has to be Jo March, because she was me and I was she. I remember once sitting in my window eating an apple barefoot because I thought it was something Jo March might do.
TCTP: Our show combines the classic plot of Little Women with the characters and language of the HBO show Girls. What is your favorite millennial phrase or slang?
AF: I bring the # (Hashtag) into a lot of things. #nmf #nmp (not my fault, not my problem) #yasss #anythingreally
TCTP: We get to see years of the March sisters childhood's crammed into a little over an hour. What is one of your favorite childhood memories?
AF: I have a really vivid memory of driving home from my grandma's house on Christmas. I loved going to her house, but for some reason I distinctly remember driving home after having a beautiful meal and fun and gifts and just feeling really at peace.
TCTP: This is an easy one. Favorite book? Can be classic or contemporary. (Just like our show!)
AF: Besides Harry Potter, besides Little Women, I really liked this book called The Ghost of Fossil Glen.
Women, runs January 6th - February 4th at The Pentagon Theater at Collaboraction Studios in The Flat Iron Arts Building
