I have an eclectic past, ... but I intentionally have pursued that because there are so many interesting points of view that I want to explore. I think I'm not quite as all over the map as maybe people think. There's a certain reason that I have done all those plays. I tend to gravitate to the writers that I think are trying to say something, or who are outside of the center a bit and who are trying to break in and get their point of view expressed.
When you're coming into something that is reasonably successful, the question always is, 'What are you going to do to make it more successful' ... For me, it's just a question to find a way in which I can present material that I believe is relevant, and that there's a dialectic that begins to be created with the Seattle community. I mean, those are lofty ideas, but I think in presenting plays, there needs to be a combination of the plays that think and some understanding that theater should also be a place of pleasure and entertainment.
