5 Questions with Amy Lehpamer

amylehpamerWhat is your favourite swear word?
The one that my phone’s auto-correct changes to duck. It’s percussive and punctuating. I enjoy it.

What are you wearing?
From the neck up, a full show face and giant bouffant blonde wig. Neck down, workout wear. I’m a hybrid musical theatre creature. It’d be a confusing sight on the street. Unless you were in Double Bay or Brighton. I hear people love this look down those parts.

What is love?
Sharing everything. And wanting to.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
South Pacific. Lisa McCune is a star. I’d give her all of them. Also to the male ensemble. Imagine waking up to those boys singing ‘There Is Nothing Like A Dame,’ it’d really change the course of your day. Another highlight was watching the audience notice that John Wood (fellow Scoundrel) was sitting amongst them. People genuinely couldn’t contain themselves that Sergeant Croydon was looking on Maggie Doyle’s stage work. It was like the Logies set to Rodgers and Hammerstein. A CLASSY Logies!

Is your new show going to be any good?
If you hate laughing and songs and handsomeness and beauty and Tony nominees, then don’t come. If you like those things – YOU GET ALL THOSE THINGS! And then some. The show is beautifully constructed. The characters are full of life and scope and a good dose of silliness. Yes.
