TCTP: Jesse gets in trouble a lot at school. Were you a troublemaker as a kid?
SC: I was the plan maker and accidentally got others in trouble. Sorry about that to anyone who knew me as a kid. All fun..never intended. So I guess I was viewed as the good kid...but was really a trouble maker.
TCTP: This is a show where characters (and the actors themselves) break the fourth wall. How do you feel about breaking the fourth wall, when you're working on a show? How about as an audience member?
SC: Honestly, I am not a fan of the fourth wall. The audience IS a part of every production and to make them feel part of it will have them more engrossed...and more self reflective in the long run.
TCTP: What distracts you?
SC: I am always distracted by my imagination.
TCTP: In the play Mama has a big decision to make about Jesse’s future. what kind of decision maker are you? You do research? Make a pro-con list? Trust your gut? Something entirely different?
SC: Depends on the decision that needs to be made. Generally, I do the research, I make the list...and then make my decision. A lot of the time...after doing the research and after making a list, I end up going with my gut. I can't always stick to the same method because not every decision that needs to be made can follow the same old tricks.
TCTP: Jesse loves rap. His parents don't love that he loves rap. What kind of music did you listen to as a kid?
SC: Honestly, boybands. My mom approved because she introduced them to me.
Come see Sara's work in DISTRACTED, running September 8 - October 7 at Prop Thtr.
