Get to know Ricky! :
TCTP: The characters that live after the incident spend a lot of time looking over their shoulders. What is one of your biggest fears?
RQ: Oh my lanta! Definitely afraid of heights (BUT I’ll still ride roller coaster) and enclosed spaces (No ma’am!).
TCTP: To deal with what happened that night, some characters turn to certain means of escape. What is your biggest vice?
RQ: The Macarena.
TCTP: Tattoos/Body Alterations (best way we could say it with no spoilers) are are a recurring image in the play. Do you have any tattoos/piercings, etc?
RQ: No, but sometimes I put on tattoo sleeves for fun.
TCTP: The incident started from a group of teenagers having a night of dumb, reckless, fun. What’s a dumb thing you did when you were young?
RQ: I was def a Celie, I’d try anything once. You can guess the rest.
TCTP: The majority of the characters are coupled up at the beginning of the play. Who was your first young love? Bonus question: Are you still together?
RQ: My first young love was named Alexandra, I think? My mom bought a knockoff of the gem of the ocean from the Titanic for me to give her (cute or nah?). Still together? HA. I don’t even remember her last name to be honest…
See Ricky and the rest of the cast of Language of Angels, running February 15 - March 26 at Redtwist Theatre.
