From writing scripts to rocking out on stage with his band, Sky-Pony, Kyle Jarrow is a true talent! The Pickwyck chatted with the hardworking writer and musician about his writing process, bringing pop and rock music to theatre and the importance of diversity in this interview!
Tell us a little bit about your earliest memories of theater, music or creative writing? Do you grow up with a creative family?
Was there one specific show that you saw, or had read about, that immediately made you think, 'Huh...this is what I want to do!'?
When did you veer off from acting and into writing?
That's okay, you're talented in many other ways! With your writing, what is your process? Do you have to be locked in a room by yourself in order to write?
When you come up with an idea, how do you go about putting that idea onto paper...or on the computer, rather, since we're in the technical age?
You are widely known for incorporating rock and pop music into the theater. Could you tell us a little bit about that and why you went down that path?
Could you tell us a little about your band, Sky-Pony?
Your show, NOIR, is currently playing at Vassar and New York Stage and Film's 31st Powerhouse Season. Could you tell us a little bit about that production?
So how is the collaboration process going? Do you prefer working with another composer/artist or do you like to do things by yourself?
I feel like TV and film is on a completely different spectrum than theatre!
Theater is always evolving. What do you hope to see happen in the future?
