Nicole Johal plays Molly in 13, the third show in the 2013-2014 Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Jason Robert Brown wrote the music and lyrics, and Dan Elish and Robert Horn wrote the book.
Question: Why did you audition for 13?
Nicole Johal: All the plays I've done have been normal plays. I wanted to do a musical because it seemed fun.
Q: Who is Molly?
N.J.: Molly is one of Lucy's minions, one of her little followers. Molly likes to gossip a lot. I like to play her because she gets to sing fun songs and be gossipy.
Q: What is the best age, whether you've already reached it or not?
N.J.: 20. You get to do things, you get to have fun.
