"We have to pay attention and we have to cultivate those opportunities for women to be the playwright, the producer, and the director—and not just as the actress. Women show up more often as actresses than as they do as writers and directors. But, I tell you, if there’s a play by Sarah Ruhl or Amy Herzog or Annie Baker or, my friend, Laura Eason I’m going to make every effort to go see it. I think that’s one of the things we need to be aware of: going out and supporting each other." - Kate Baldwin for The Interval (x)

I think you, Tom, and I make a pretty good team.

But, Ricky, why can't I be in the show?|
You know what's funny? Don't worry. I'll tell you.
Some Facts for the Biographer:
Raised in Ohio. Now in Manhattan. I drink too much Diet Coke. I saw my first I Love Lucy episode at three and from then on assumed “trying to put on a show” was a perfectly normal pastime. . When I am bored I like to look at real estate online. I have a giant stuffed leopard named Baby. I think I would make an excellent spy. When I am scared I sing showtunes to myself. I have, on more than one occasion, been asked to use my “indoor voice” at the Met. About once every two months I think I’d like to live on a farm. When I am sad I like to put my fur vest on, eat grapefruit with my special grapefruit spoons, and pretend I am in 1930s Hollywood. I like making people gifts. One day I would like to own a pink and green plaid piano. Lady Mary is my role model. One of my life goals is to learn to tap dance.
