The Cast and Crew of SWEET ANALYTICS

We had a chance to sit with two of the talented artists working on Sweet Analytics! Read on to hear about what inspires them and why you should check out this exciting show!


MAXWELL SHULTS

Tympanic: What drew you to become a sound designer/composer?

Maxwell: My life has always been steeped in sound. I like blurring the line between sound design and music; I use a lot of guitar drones for pieces because they feel more textural and help me build the world I'm trying to help create, and I also just love listening to that sort of thing.

Tympanic: What inspiration did you draw from for the design in Sweet Analytics?

Maxwell: I tried to think about how it would sound if your life suddenly became 100% surreal. Things would still be recognizable but with a sort of...extra layer? Or some kind of distorted element. I tried to approach it that way.

Tympanic: What's one thing you'd sell your soul for (feel free to be silly on this)? Why?

Maxwell: I sold my soul to Ed Abramson in 5th grade for a nickel, but I think he gifted it back to me in high school. I guess I have to check the clause in my contract to see if I'm allowed to sell it again, but I'd like to have more time to be able to create music without detriment to my personal & work life. Maybe to be able to function without NEEDING sleep, I guess?

Tympanic: If you had the chance to write the most important article of all time, what would you write about?

Maxwell: Deconstruction of gender. As someone who is very much a part of the queer community, it's important to me that we start breaking down as many of these walls as possible.

TympanicWhy should people see Sweet Analytics?

Maxwell: As with all the plays I've seen and loved, it has a perfect balance of humor and sadness, of darkness and light, and it features some amazing work by many amazing people.


ROSIE MOAN (actor)

Tympanic: What drew you to the script?

 - I always really like Hayes' work. I think her strong sense of dialogue and reactions in the moment feels like a cool contrast to such an epic and well-known story. 

Tympanic: What's one thing you'd sell your soul for (feel free to be silly on this)? Why? 

- After doing this play, it's pretty apparent to me that anything I fantasize about is probably something that should stay that way, because if I get what I want, it will most likely be way more awful than what I imagine. That said, I would like Beyonce to adopt me. 

Tympanic: If you had the chance to write the most important article of all time, what would you write about? 

- Why 'RuPaul's Drag Race' is the best show on TV. 

TympanicWhy should people see Sweet Analytics?  

I think it is one of a kind. I can't think of any other play's that touch on the female experience quite like this one. And with a female President in our near future, I think it's incredibly timely and just a damn good show.
