Cast Spotlight on Emma Langer

by Tracey on May 4, 2017

Our cast members are complex, intelligent, and witty people. You simply have to hear them to believe us. We asked 4 questions to give you a feel for the innermost workings of their minds, and the variety of answers has been one of the highlights of this year’s process. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

1. If you could meet any person in history (living or dead, real or fictional) who would it be and why?

The 11th Doctor, because bow ties and fezzes are cool.

2. Have you ever been on stage before? How do you feel about going on stage for the LTYM show, knowing you’re also reading your own words?

No, very nervous and excited at time. But a little more excited then nervous.

3. Unrelated to your essay, do you have a motherhood story to share?

Once upon time…  (I’m not a mother so I didn’t have anything to answer this question with.)

4. If you could relive one day over again, what would you choose and why?

One December, my mom was very, very sick. She had gone to the hospital two or three times already. I remember all I wanted was for her to be happy and healthy for Christmas. On December 23, my siblings and I had to go to a friend’s house because my mom needed to go to the emergency room. And the next day, when we came home (I didn’t know at the time, but she had had emergency surgery) she was healthy. When I came home, everyone was healthy and happy. That hadn’t happened in months. So if I could relive one day, it would be December 24, because everyone was happy and healthy, I’ll never forget that day.


Thank you, Emma!
