Are you prepared for what this year’s Edinburgh Fringe has in store for you?
I have no idea, but probably not. This is my first year as a producer and the biggest unknown is that I don’t know what I don’t know.
What is the premise of your Edinburgh show this year?
“Voldemort” is a musical parody and loving tribute to the world of Harry Potter. It’s a prequel of sorts, showing what Tom Riddle was like before he became He Who Must Not Be Named.
What was the biggest obstacle you face(d) while putting this show together?
Casting and scheduling! Getting eight talented Los Angeles actors to pull up stakes and leave the country for five weeks is very difficult.
Who would most enjoy your show?
Harry Potter fans, no doubt, but also fans of irreverent delightful comedy and music.
Do you have any other Edinburgh show recommendations?
I’ll definitely be checking out Sofie Hagen, Phil Ellis, and as much magic and circus as I can fit in my schedule.
What is your favourite thing about Edinburgh as a city?
It’s either the rich tapestry of history and culture that weaves its way through the very cobblestones of the town, or it’s a restaurant called Noodles & Dumplings on South Clerk Street.
What are your plans for after the festival?
To return to California and avoid looking at my bank account.
