Read on for our Q&A with Jess!
Q: What sparked your interest in working on this show and/or with Moxie Arts?
A: I became involved with Moxie through founder Kayla Friend, who graciously gave me the opportunity to take a hobby of costuming and turn it into a skill.
Q: What has been your favorite part of the process so far?
A: My favorite part so far was sitting at our production meeting surrounded by our all woman+ team!
Q: Who is a woman+ artist you admire and why?
A: Edith Head is a huge inspiration for me as a designer, as she was responsible for defining an entire era in film, which happens to be my favorite era.
Q: What’s your favorite thing about living in NYC?
A: I love living in NYC for the wonderful and various opportunities to be creative and also eat amazing food from around the world.
Q: Why should people come see From A to Double D?
A: People should see this show because it tells an important story about accepting and overcoming a sad reality and shines light in a struggle so many women+ individuals go through.
