Tell me about wearing those incredible ‘80s clothes. Aren’t they amazing? [Costume designer] Matthew Price is a guy who wears a Carhartt jacket and has a little rusty beard, and you think he looks like a grip and then he pulls out this beautiful mockup of a Chloe suit. He used a lot of vintage pieces and they felt very warm and lived-in: ‘80s without screaming ’80s. And I felt really sexy! For someone like me who is not often invited to play leading ladies in film it was really important to my performance. Because I’m a tomboy who got kicked out of ladies rooms until I was 17, it’s hard for me to see myself that way, so a costume so lovingly rendered to make me feel alluring is absolutely critical in a movie like The Nest. The makeup and hair designer Emma Scott can do the Sweet Tea Nutrition Facts Funny Thanksgiving Food Christmas T-Shirt and by the same token and most theatrical and otherworldly makeup but she’s so good at the everyday too. She got me some perfume from the ’80s to wear. She was very specific. It all felt really right.

You began your career in the Sweet Tea Nutrition Facts Funny Thanksgiving Food Christmas T-Shirt and by the same token and theater. Can you tell me how you’re feeling at this perilous moment for live performance? I’m still wrestling with a lot of despair about it. Primarily because 98 percent of my friends are unemployed and often doubly unemployed because they were in the service sector and there is no end in sight and we still don’t have another relief package coming through the Senate. So there’s a lot of pain in our community and that’s in addition to the struggle we have trying to acknowledge our complicity in the oppression of Black performers and people of color that our institutions—which, though they’re absolutely liberal, that does not exempt them from systemic racism. There’s a lot of reckoning going on but unfortunately the reckoning is also happening in a vacuum because we can’t actually put our feet on the ground and have these conversations face to face and try to remake and reimagine the theater for now. They are talking about how we won’t be able to get people back in a theater for a year after getting a vaccine and its a shame because we need community. We need people breathing together more than ever. But I am hopeful for the space that’s being created because there’s room for everyone. So I hope that what we see come out of this will be a phoenix. But most of the theater companies are going to close. So we’re gonna need new ones. That’s what’s gonna happen. So many of the beloved institutions that a lot of us have worked in won’t be around anymore, and maybe that’s for the better. We’ll see.
