Get to know Jane!
TCTP: Jonathan Larson also wrote RENT. What’s your go to RENT song to belt when you’re alone?
JM: Don't really do that but sometimes I listen to One Song Glory on repeat and gaze pensively off into the distance with my eyes narrowed.
TCTP: The main conflict of the show is dealing with not accomplishing what you thought you would. Have you ever struggled with that?
JM: I think that every musician/artistic person has, but I try to be positive as much as I can and grateful for what I have accomplished.
TCTP: What’s your favorite lyric in the show?
JM: "Cages or wings, which do you prefer? Ask the birds. Fear or love? Baby don’t say the answer, actions speak louder than words"
TCTP: Susan doesn’t love being a dance teacher and John doesn’t love working at a diner, while Michael eventually gave up the arts for corporate America. What’s your relationship with your survival job?
JM: I have two music degrees and 4 jobs, and I'm very grateful they are all music-related. It would be cool if someone could just pay me to do nothing though.
TCTP: Jon is ashamed of his Twinkie obsession. What’s your favorite guilty pleasure?
JM: Ordering avocado toast from Fairgrounds in Wicker Park from Uber Eats for like $17.
