BWW Interview: Kristen Hahn: The Many Layers of Sgt. Sarah BrownBWW Interview: Kristen Hahn: The Many Layers of Sgt. Sarah Brown
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Jun 27, 2017

"She's a wonderfully layered character," Kristen Hahn exclaims as she describes her newest role. "Most of all in her heart she wants to help people, but she is not quite cut out to rule with an iron fist like her mentor, General Cartwright. I think at first she is feeling a little lost and not willing to admit it. When she meets Sky Masterson, they go head-to-head. She is probably the first woman to challenge him. As the play develops, she realizes maybe she can have both her mission work and love. By letting her hair down a little when she discovers love, she realizes that she becomes of better use to the people she wants to help. It is very liberating for her. Sarah Brown is a strong lady, and that is a wonderful treat for an actress to play!" she concludes. (more...)
