I Interview Playwrights Part 1089: Annabelle Lee Revak

Annabelle Lee Revak

Hometown: Spooner, WI

Current Town: Chicago, IL

Q:  What are you working on now? 

A:  A musical fairytale called Starfall. It's about two people from opposite ends of the universe trying to understand each other, and how their journey as friends creates the first shooting star.

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

A:  My cousins and I got the nickname 'The Carpet Ruiners' growing up. We scattered crayon shavings because we imagined they were fairy dust, we spilled bottles of nail polish- we melted Laffy Taffy into the carpet once. But it was always because we were making something. I think that's why art has always been messy for me; I'm happy to throw a first draft at the wall and see what sticks, knowing that lots of it may not 'work'. But if you don't make the mess, you can't clean it up.

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

A:  I'd make it more inclusive. In all aspects; the people on the theatre board, the creative team, the cast, the writers, the musicians. There are so many perspectives from which you can tell a story, and we so often get stuck in a rut.

Q:  Who are or were your theatrical heroes? 

A:  Honestly, my high school drama/music teachers, Mr. Thornley and Mrs. Schultz. I'm from a very small town and I wouldn't have known about musical theatre at all if it weren't for them.

Q:  What kind of theater excites you? 

A:  Anything that forces me to use my imagination; if I leave the theatre with wonderings or questions, if the show made me think, I'm happy.

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

A:  I think I'm a just-starting-out playwright, myself. You just have to start, throw yourself in head-first. And call yourself a playwright, if you've written twelve plays or one scene. People believe what you project.

Q:  Plugs, please: 

A:  I have an EP coming out titled "Hummingbird" on 07/17. All proceeds on release day will go to Broadway for Racial Justice (https://www.bfrj.org/), and 75% of proceeds every day after will continue to be given to BFRJ. Album info here: https://annabelleleerevak.bandcamp.com/album/hummingbird

I am a family person and we all know that saving money for a family person is very difficult. One day I was searching some travelling sites then I got Lufthansa Airlines. When I dialed their Lufthansa Airlines Phone Number, I got amazing deals and discounted tickets even with best facilities.
