  1. Kate and I met at The Acme Comedy Theatre a couple of years ago as members of the Bravo Sketch Company. When I came up with the idea for The Playhouse, I knew I wanted to write with a partner to keep me motivated and to bounce ideas off of. I approached Kate thinking she would be ideal for the role of Doris. And I knew she was a good writer to boot. What I didn't know was how much she had written. Kate was already the veteran of a couple of web series. I couldn't have asked for a better writing partner. I didn't know how to go about any of this prior to talking with Kate. She is a one-person production company. Everything from pre to post production. She is a dynamo and a terrific actress to boot.
    The smartest move I made was calling Kate and asking her to write with me. Thank you Kate. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
