EVA, Patrick, President Trump discussed on Here & Now


It is quite unusual on both the low in Anaheim for Patrick, and I, but it's it's it's great. 'cause I grew up listening to a lot of female singers. Bobby mcferrin was a huge influence on.

And then goes back down underground. And I think what's incredible. Is that with the people the creative team? They've really allowed me to express it in a way that she is very scrappy and punky and cheese survivor, but she also uses her instincts to make certain choices without giving too much away. And there's also a beautiful love story. And that's also I think as modern as you can get with portraying falling in love everyone can relate to that. So yeah, it was nice to give her voice and for her not to be victimized in this play. Now, you're doing this show in the United States at a time. When obviously we've been hearing a lot about building the wall. President Trump talking about building the wall in your show, which was written before President Trump started saying that you.
