What is your secret superpower?

“The ability to zoom in on the devilish microdetails and finding that one important detail in a sea of paperwork that can make all the difference.”

What’s your proudest career moment?

Everything we do is about audience experience.  At the Italian opening of Priscilla, I sat next to an autistic child who experienced a breakthrough moment of joy thanks to the music and joy of our show.  And the time I sat next to a heterosexual man in Italy with tears in his eyes… Those moments when the message of Priscilla gets through in ways you don’t expect make me unspeakably proud.

What has been your most memorable theatre experience?

Seeing A Chorus Line aged 12.  In its day it was revolutionary and broke a lot of boundaries.  RENT for the same reasons.  The Torch Song Trilogy for its explosive expressiveness and La Bête on the West End with Joanna Lumley.
