The Story of Itys: Meet Carrie Drapac

Where are you from?
I hail from just outside of Gary, Indiana but made my way to Chicago via New York. So, I often feel like a New Yorker with Midwestern sensibilities.

What do you do when you're not performing?

When not performing, my days (and nights) are mostly consumed by building, running, and working for my small in-home personal training business, Comfy Fitness.

What is your favorite moment in The Love of the Nightingale?

Oh moment, really?! Actually, I think what captivates me more so than any moment in Nightingale is the text. I'm am completely astounded each time I hear different speeches and realize that by the end of the show, single words have now taken on layers of meaning.

Any standout rehearsal moments?

I LOVED seeing the choreography for the first time last night in rehearsal. It offers the audience yet another way into the world of the play.

What's a fun fact about your character?

Hmmm, what don't we know about Itys? Well, he feeds a stray kitten that he has named Aepytus after his favorite Greek figure...but that all happens off-stage.

The Love of the Nightingale runs May 3-29.
