Get to know Francesca! :


TCTP: Sisterhood is one of the main themes of our show. Do you have any siblings?


FA: Yes, I’m the youngest of four – two older brothers and one older sister.


TCTP: Jo from Little Women is considered to be a classic literary character, who is your favorite?


FA: I’ve never been much of a classic lit fiend, but I guess Sir Toby, Sir Andrew, and Maria from Twelfth Night ‘cause they’re such a wild bunch of people.


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?


FA: the 100 emoji


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?


FA: My family and a bunch of our family friends would go camping together for a weekend in Galena, IL. We did this for several years, and I always looked forward to it as a kid. Our version of being “rustic” was swimming in the campground's heated pool and playing in the air-conditioned arcade. This type of camping was the only way I’d be doing anything outdoorsy because at this point in my life, I wouldn’t be caught dead doing anything like that.


TCTP: This is an easy one. Favorite book? Can be classic or contemporary. (Just like our show!)


FA: The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini


Women, runs January 6th - February 4th at The Pentagon Theater at Collaboraction Studios in The Flat Iron Arts Building
