BWW Interviews: Chris Abraham talks SOMEONE ELSE

So do I think this play will resonate more or be more 'popular'? I would love if that were true but I think all three plays really resonate through human and accessible stories.

Do you feel a certain amount of pressure or expectation given the tremendous success of I, Claudia?

Well we've done so much separately and grown up a lot since our first adventure together and Kristen has never really tried to repeat what happened with I, Claudia so I don't think we're focused on expectations. She's never had the prior success of I, Claudia be front and centre in her mind. I think that's partially because of how she writes. She writes by putting on masks and improvising and generating hours and hours of material. The plays come together as an unconscious exercise and when we're making a play together we focus on that. I observe what rises to the surface.

When and Where?

Kelly Cameron Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and is honoured to be representing the Toronto contingent of BroadwayWorld as Senior Editor overseeing the GTA region.

Her writing career started almost by accident, though it has always been in her blood as her Mom was an English teacher who firmly believed in the importance of being able to turn a phrase. She also loved sharing her love of theatre with her students (and her children), and was a staunch supporter of the arts in Toronto.

When not at the theatre, you can usually find Kelly with a Starbucks in one hand and her BlackBerry in the other, tweeting, reading or doing something quirky and clumsy for the sake of getting that next big story.

She's incredibly grateful to the amazing Toronto theatre community who have embraced her with open arms, giving her the greatest gift a little redheaded theatre geek could ever ask for - getting to be a part of this vibrant arts and culture scene. She may have never had the skills to be on the stage, but is thankful every day she gets to write about the inspiring people who do.
