AN INTERVIEW WITH SETH KNOWLES
ROXY: You’re acting for the second time in as many months on stage at Roxy’s Downtown. How was it going from a serious play to this nonsensical musical parody?
KNOWLES: A huge change of pace, to be blunt. I went from peaceful, quiet, relaxed, blind Bobby in a 3 hour show to a fast paced, upbeat, always moving 1 1/2 hour review. It’s fun to switch it up.
ROXY: Where do you see yourself in five years?
KNOWLES: Making a living acting and writing, if all goes according to plan!
ROXY: You’re a Spider-Man fan, yes? Do you ever see yourself doing Turn Off the Dark?
KNOWLES: I’m a huge comic fan and I love Spider Man! I wanted to be a part of Turn Off the Dark, but after seeing how it went, I’m a little nervous to try it!
ROXY: Who would be your ultimate Mary Jane?
KNOWLES: In my life, I’ve not quite found my Mary Jane, so I’m keeping my eyes peeled for one. She’s out there somewhere…
ROXY: Be honest with your answers… and no cheating… tell me if you know who Elaine Stritch, Raul Julia, Michael Crawford, and Lauren Bacall are.
KNOWLES: They’re famous actors and actresses! (Thanks for teaching me, Rick, Shaun, & Jon!)
ROXY: Tell us 5 things most people don’t know about Seth.
KNOWLES: 1) I’m very accident prone: I’ve broken bones, been in crashes… it’s been rough.
2) I want to be a rock star at some point. I’ve been in a few bands.
3) I used to race motocross and play football thorough high school.
4) I’ve always wanted a Siberian husky or a Malamute puppy to raise.
5) I dunno! I’m a huge comic geek, but most people know that.
