"Twelfth Night" and "Richard III" with original type costumes and staging
Films: Inside Llewyn Davis and 12 Years a Slave

What are you listening to right now?
I don't listen to much music or books on tape. I am a regular listener to NPR, and raised my daughters on NPR. Now one is a Kroc fellow at NPR.
What’s the last great book you read?
In midst of reading Death and Afterlife. Very thought provoking.
What’s one thing you’re a fan of that people might not expect?
Eating good food. I'm pretty skinny and yet really love good food - and baking good desserts. I never drink coffee - which surprises a lot of people - but love tea.
What’s your favorite comfort food?
My own banana cake or apple crisp. I love baking - the baking itself I find comforting.
