Romola Garai about representation in The Interval. (via romoladaily)
“When I really started thinking more seriously about my industry and how it treats women, I thought, ‘I would rather say stuff and have people laugh at me than say nothing about it at all.’”— Romola Garai talking about gender equality // The Interval (x)
This is one of my favorite interviews we’ve done for The Interval. If you’re interested in a really, really smart woman’s thoughts on being a woman working in the entertainment industry, read it.
If you haven’t checked out The Interval yet, I recommend it. They’ve only been around since August but they are doing some fantastic interviews with female theatrical professionals. I mean Susan Stroman, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Heidi Schreck, Christina Anderson, Lindsay Mendez, etc etc. It’s nice to see a site devoted solely to women in theater. Keep an eye on them.
I met them yesterday at maxamoo HQ- they recorded an interview that I believe will be up the same day as the Female Playwright Preview I did- and they were lovely. I’m looking forward to hearing more from them.
