5 Questions with Tansy Gardam

SONY DSCWhat is your favourite swear word?
Fuck. It’s so versatile. Particularly when used in “for fuck’s sake.”

What are you wearing?
Jeans and an Elvis Costello t-shirt.

What is love?
It’s like trust and affection had a baby.

What was the last show you saw, and how many stars do you give it?
Zena Ladna at La Mama. 1.5 stars.

Is your new show going to be any good?
Yes. I know everyone says that, but it’s fantastic – the cast are all phenomenal and we’re doing something a bit different with the show, which I feel a lot of musical theatre shies away from. We’ve cross cast leads and added in conga lines and I can’t wait for people to see it.
