What are some of your favorite shows?

Grayman: Hello Again by Michael John LaChiusa, Translations by Brian Friel, Old Wicked Songs by Jon Marans

You both also teach?

Parkhurst: I teach private dance lessons, and Michael teaches private acting lessons. More than ever, if kids want a career in musical theater, they must be a triple threat: actor, singer and dancer. Dancer-singers are a dime a dozen. Our students are hard-working, disciplined, and love to learn and improve. Their parents realize that, for their children, this is not a "hobby" but a career, and that the level of dedication and work it takes to improve one's craft, to develop and maintain technique, is immense and never-ending.

What's next?

Parkhurst: The 2014–15 season of four shows instead of three! Hopefully a child is in our future. We'd like to give a good, safe home to a child who needs that. And we'd like to keep creating and producing artful theatrical productions with like-minded, creative and collaborative local artists.

Grayman: Motherhood Out Loud, running February 6–16 at Off Center Theatre in Crown Center
