Selina Martin’s Triple Threat

With our tour of Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craigslist Cantata all closed up for now, we’ve got to see we’re gonn miss these guys! Luckily, we’ve saved Selina Martin for last. With her quirky, distinct style she has brought so much of herself to A Craigslist Cantata that we couldn’t possibly imagine the piece without her. In our final Craigslist triple threat, Selina shares her deadpan humour that we just can’t get enough of. 

What musical’s score will you always remember?

Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craigslist Cantata – Veda Hille writes incredibly catchy tunes. I still find myself singing them aloud months after the last performance.

What musical’s book or virtuosic acting will you always remember?

Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craigslist Cantata – I’ve never had the opportunity to perform a role this many times before. When you do a show over and over again you get to go through many phases and explore many aspects of each character. On some nights certain characters seem to take on a whole new personality. It’s fascinating. Even if some of them only have a few lines, I feel like they are old best friends. I know them inside and out. 

What musical’s choreography will you always remember?

Do You Want What I Have Got? A Craigslist Cantata – Again. Specifically the Toronto production. Monica Dottor did a fantastic job. There are specific quirks to her style of choreography that are unique & cool. She used a lot of hand placement and head movement that I think gave the show a particular style.

You’re on a desert island and can only bring one cast recording with you. What do you choose?

Hedwig and the Angry Inch – I performed in this ages ago and I haven’t listened to it in a long time, but I thought the music was amazing. I’m a sucker for glam rock.

What movie or book would you love to see musicalized?

Popeye – The Musical!, of course. Also, I’ve been told if The Master and Margarita were musicalized, I’d be perfect in that one.

What is your dream role that you’ll never get to play?

Frankenfurter in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
