I Interview Playwrights Part 988: November Christine

November Christine

Hometown: That's a tough one. I was a military brat, born in Germany. We moved every two years til I was about 12. Most of my family now lives in Greenville, NC.

Current Town: Los Angeles, CA

Q:  What are you working on now?

A:  I'm writing and producing a musical theatre audiobook series called LEGACY. It's a historical fiction based on the life of Martin Luther. Think Hamilton meets A Christmas Carol. To my knowledge, it's the first original musical to be produced as an audiobook.

Q:  Tell me, if you will, a story from your childhood that explains who you are as a writer or as a person.

A:  When I was very young I had a fear of dandelions. It was the white seedlings, the way they'd fly off like a swarm of gnats. I remember picking one and carefully bringing it to my mom. "Blow it," I said. "I won't run this time." She blew it, and I ran away as fast as my little legs could carry me. I didn't succeed at facing my fear. Not that time. But I had tried. Anyway, I overcame it eventually. Still can't stand swarms though.

Q:  If you could change one thing about theater, what would it be?

A:  More women, people of color, LGBT, and differently abled people at the producer/investor level. We can write our stories all we want, but we need representatives from marginalized communities at the decision making level, or these stories will never see the light of day.

Q:  Who are or were your theatrical heroes?

A:  I really love Mamet's work. I'm also inspired by Danai Jekesai Gurira's journey from being a television actress to a powerful female voice on the Broadway stage.

Q:  What kind of theater excites you?

A:  I love theatre that makes me uncomfortable; theatre that makes me question what I already believe to be true.

Q:  What advice do you have for playwrights just starting out?

A:  Don't worry about being good. You're just starting. So probably you're not good. The point is to always be writing. That's how you become a good writer.

Q:  When not writing on a computer, what's your go-to paper and writing utensil? When on computer, what's your font?

A:  I'll write on anything except napkins--only because I'll forget and throw the napkin out as trash later. I don't like pencils. I prefer lightly scratching out mistakes rather than erasing because 90% of the time I decide the mistake was the right choice after all. There's a life lesson in there somewhere.

Q:  Plugs, please:

A:  My Facebook Page:

You can get Episodes 1 & 2 of the LEGACY series on Audible, Amazon, or iTunes.
