Get to Know… Leta Tremblay, Producer

How long have you worked with FullStop?
Since the beginning. FullStop Collective was originally founded by members of the Eugene O’Neill National Theater Institute class of Fall ’05 of which I was one of 29. I’ve been around since the first idea of FullStop was a tiny chicklette and I’m still going strong as this our newest creation is hatched.

What has been your favorite part of the rehearsal process so far?
I’ve only been able to sit in on a few rehearsals so far but I have to say that hearing the music grow, change, and become more complex as these amazing actors bring such life to it has been my favorite part. In a recent rehearsal I laughed, cried, and leaned forward in rapture.

What are you doing when you are not acting/directing/designing?
Sleeping? Working a day job to pay the bills? Eating like a vegan? I honestly try to never NOT be working on a show. It’s what I moved to New York to do and it’s what convinces me to get up every morning. When I’m not working on a FullStop show you can bet I’m directing, producing, or stage managing something else. Keep up with my current productions on my website!:

Why did you get into theater?
I’ve been onstage since I was 3 years old. It’s where I feel the most at home. I tried to be a Psychology major in college . . . but the theatre building across the quad called to be. This life choose me and I can’t imagine living any other way.

What is your vision of utopia?
Life without the bullshit. A place where there is no such thing as wealth or poverty. Where people allow themselves to love freely and spend their energy in pursuit of making the world a better place for the next generation.

If you were king/queen of the world, how would you solve our global warming crisis?
As queen of the world I have power to do such things? Sounds like I am a sorcerer. As sorcerer of the world I would wipe out all technological advances and bring the world back to nature. Naturally sustainable. What do we really need to survive? Food, water, air, shelter, protection from the elements, and opportunity to reproduce. Really. That’s it.

Along those lines, what else would you do as king/queen of the world?
At that point there is no need for me to remain sorcerer of the world. When I have completed my task at hand, I will join the little people in paradise.

Ever been to Brazil? How about Jacksonville?
Not yet but maybe someday!
