Get to know Melissa!
TCTP: What’s a guilty pleasure that you wish wasn’t considered one?
MG: Eating a pint of ice cream in one sitting… that didn’t take much thought tbh lol.
TCTP: Have you already planned your dream wedding?
MG: I used to think it would be really cool to get married in a very old and ornate theater in NYC or Chicago but that’s about as far as any wedding planning has ever gone on my part.
TCTP: When’s the last time you compromised on something?
MG: Every day; theatre is collaborative, if you’re not compromising then you’re doing something wrong… or you’re a nightmare to work with.
TCTP: What’s something you’ve done for your health that you hate?
MG: I recently completed an Elimination Diet to see if I was allergic to dairy… turned out to be lactose so I kinda dodged a bullet there.
TCTP: Chocolate Martini or Vodka Tonic?
MG: I’ve had chocolate wine so I’d be willing to give the martini a good old college try.
