We asked Bailey to answer our Ten Questions, inspired by James Lipton’s eight questions he asked artists in his Actor’s Studio TV program, plus two of our own.

  1. What is your favorite word?: Stunning

  4. What Turns You Off? Pack mentality

  8. What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? Law law and more law. Also possibly politics.
  9. You have one last play to do. What is it? Depends on if we’re talking acting or directing . Acting would probably be A Night of Stars one last time. Directing it would probably be Falsettos
