Get to know Francesca! :
TCTP: When was a time that you stood up for yourself? Did it work out in your favor?
FA: I stood up to an old boss when she tried to make me do several menial tasks which were not conducive to the work flow. It worked out for me because it was easier than I thought it would be to say no to her and because I didn’t have to do more work.
TCTP: Callie is a not-so- secret foodie. What’s your favorite restaurant in the city to bring friends to?
FA: Candlelite – good pizza, good people
TCTP: Stop Kiss takes place in the 90s, so what’s one thing from that decade you would want to bring back?
FA: Pop bands dancing in their music videos
TCTP: Have you ever been an innocent bystander in a situation? What did you do?
FA: Nothing that comes to mind
TCTP: Straddle or Swerve?
Come see Francesca's work Stop Kiss, running April 7- May 6 at The Vault at Collaboraction Studios in the Flat Iron Arts Building
