5 Questions with Nick Curnow

nickcurnowWhat is your favourite swear word?
I’m quite partial to “zounds.” But I mostly use the ol’ faithful fuck.

What are you wearing?
A smile. Also jeans, t-shirt from MonsterThreads in Newtown and colourful Bucketfeet sneakers.

What is love?
Love is blindness – I don’t want to see. Won’t you wrap the night around me? Well that’s what U2 said, but I prefer the cover by Cassandra Wilson.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Angels In America: Part 2. Five stars, absolutely. Stellar cast in a wonderfully realised production. Gave me shivers.

Is your new show going to be any good?
It’s going to be brilliant – it’s been a long time coming! I first saw the play performed about 10 years ago and it’s been percolating at the back of my mind ever since. Really happy to finally be bringing it to life with director Alexander Butt.
