Tori Rosa plays Lucy 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?
Tori Rosa: Tamzin Malone is one of my favorite directors, and all my friends were auditioning. I thought it would be fun to work with all of them.
Q: Who is Lucy?
T.R.: Lucy is the mean girl who tries to steal everyone's friends and boyfriends. It's fun to be mean, especially because I'm being mean to my friends and they know I'm joking.
Q: What is the best age, whether you've already reached it or not?
T.R.: 17. You already have your license and you know how to drive better. It's a good age.
