Name: Christina Pecce

Where are you creating theatre? 

The Green Room 42 in NYC

Tell us about your current project? 

Witches, Bitches, and Divas! Deemed “truly spellbinding” by NiteLife Exchange, songs from your favorite standards, musicals, and operas are given a fresh spin to keep you enchanted and bewildered. This is a night of cross-over comedy you do NOT want to miss. Celebrate iconic roles, both onstage and off, but beware… this program is sure to put a spell on you!

What continues to inspire your art? 

The idea of working with external boundaries and breaking down walls to expand your sphere. Creating your own opportunities in a world where limits can at times feel overwhelming. Finding moments of connection in our shared humanity.

Any advice for your peers?

There are so many things that are out of our control and it can feel incredibly binding. Focus on what IS in your control. Find your glow and spread it to your community!

What’s next for you? 

WBD hits the stage of The John W. Engeman Theater on Long Island on Friday, August 20th at 8pm and The Lyric Stage Company of Boston on Saturday, August 28th at 8pm.
