My Life in 8 Words
Q. What is your motto or maxim?
A. Imua, which is Hawaiian for 'forward!'

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

Sometimes I've had the same experience on stage--and sometimes in a theater audience, too: sort of wow, this is so great I wish it would never end. Is that perfect happiness?
