And that's not all, fans of Lyssie J! Click HERE for Part I of my interview with Josh Segarra, and HERE for Part II. But, before you go, check out what Lindsay has to say about life backstage and being in a new show by Douglas Carter Beane.
Jeff Kyler: Both times I saw Lysistrata Jones, it struck me just how much fun it looks like all of you are having. Is it is fun as it looks? Is it like a frat house backstage, too?
Lindsay Nicole Chambers: It’s a load of fun. The cast all gets along so well- we’re like a family. We have fun and MAKE fun of each other, but we’re really supportive and everyone feels the love. It’s a well-oiled machine backstage- our crew is awesome. Total pros. Having said that, I guess there’s a fair amount of fooling around. Ha.
JK: Being with a show for the long-haul must have its challenges and rewards. What is it like to create a character from scratch and play it with different cast members as the show evolves?
LNC: It’s amazing. That is all. To have someone as smart and drop-dead funny as Douglas Carter Beane writing a character ON you is a thrill and an experience I will never forget.
JK: Not only are you creating a role in a brand new Broadway show, you are doing so in a show written by “it guy” Douglas Carter Beane! What has it been like to work with him? Do you find that there is a certain way to approach his works as opposed to others?

JK: How has Robin changed and remained the same throughout this process? How much of you is a part of Robin? Are you two completely different girls?

JK: I have to admit, and I’m not just saying this because we are talking, but both times I’ve seen the show, I found myself following just about everything you do. I guess I’ve always had a thing for the strong, moody kind of girl. I think, if people watch you throughout, they might be shocked at how naughty Robin really is. Is all of that in the script, blocking and choreography? Did you have any say in how far it could go?

JK: If I ever got to see Robin’s dorm room, what would I find there that I’d expect? What would surprise the hell out of me?
