We were very fortunate to speak with another actor and the production manager for Blueberry Toast. Read on to learn a bit about them and why you should see our newest show! Meister headshot 2Tympanic: What's your name and who are you in Blueberry Toast?

Christopher: I'm Christopher Meister and I play Walt.

Tympanic: What drew you to the script?

Christopher: I felt that it was a great satire, so sharp and focused, but also had elements of Beckett in it. Mary has such a keen eye and her dialogue is so conversational yet profound. There is a ton of dark humor, but some beautiful poetic verse as well. Suburbs in Tarantinoland.

Tympanic: What would be your ideal breakfast? OR If you could only eat one thing for breakfast for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Christopher: Foodie answer:  Poached saffron eggs on grilled sourdough and apple-habanero jam.  Dirty-real:  FRIED CHICKEN AND WAFFLES, yup.

Tympanic: What's the weirdest thing you've ever put on toast?

Christopher: Cowbrain. And lots of hot sauce.

Tympanic: Why should people see Blueberry Toast?

Christopher: It plays on the primal fears of two people in a long term relationship. It's humor and darkness are very honest, even in it's extremity. It lets the audience explores their base fears that any sane person would never, ever act on in real life. It's got some amazing work from the actors and designers. I'm pretty proud to be a part of this.

 

Eric Turner HSTympanic: What's your name and what drew you to become a production manager?

Eric: Eric Turner. As a production manager, it's a fun challenge to attempt to bring logic and order to something as chaotic as live theater.

Tympanic: What would be your ideal breakfast? OR If you could only eat one thing for breakfast for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Eric: Eggs. The most versatile food ever.

Tympanic: What's the weirdest thing you've ever put on toast?

Eric: Fried ham and mustard.

Tympanic: Why should people see Blueberry Toast?

Eric: Who doesn't enjoy a light comedy about breakfast and Leave it to Beaver ideals?
