With a captivating voice and a commandment of the stage, Jenny D. Green is a performer to watch. Just having finished up a run in Manhattan Theatre Source’s “Billy Carver and The Children In Mind” (along with fellow “Adaumbelle’s Quest” participants Stuart Williams and Lauren Roth), Jenny is already back in a new show there called “Kill The Bid.” Jenny also starred in Manhattan Theatre Source’s production of “The Crucible.” Her other stage credits include “Rhesus” (American Thymele Theatre) and “Elizabeth in Tidings” (Storm Theatre). Be sure to catch Jenny in “Kill The Bid” at Manhattan Theatre Source (177 MacDougal Street, NYC) through August 7. Tickets are $18.

1. Who inspired you to become a performer? I cannot remember a time when I did not want to be an actress. My Mum (and family, and even some friends) did virtually everything they could to dissuade me, and I did several (dozen) ‘proper jobs’ before allowing myself to fully follow my dream.

2. Who is the one person you haven’t worked with that you would like to? There are so many people I admire that I have not had chance to work with. But since my first love is comedy and my comedy heroines are Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders, I guess I would have to plump for them!

3. Do you have any rituals that you have to do before a performance? How do you decompress after a show? I really need at least 30 mins of relaxation and vocal warm-up time in the space before a show. I decompress with a delicious cup of booze.

4. If you could dream about anyone while you sleep, who would it be? A handsome prince, who can make me laugh and keep me in style.

5. What’s the best advice someone ever gave you? er…I don’t really follow advice (see answer to Q1), but I seek wisdom in everything, especially yogi tea labels, Sweet Muse Brownie inserts and Fortune Cookies.

6. Books or Magazines? Both are the greatest escapes and educations.

7. Favorite TV Show? I don’t really have a current fave, but feel like I’d love most things on HBO (which I can’t afford). I used to love all sorts of American imports to the UK, from Wonder Woman to the Waltons, and now I really enjoy things like “Reno 911” and “Mad Men.”

8. Favorite way to spend your day off? By the water.

9. Favorite website? Does Google count?

10. Superman or Wonder Woman? I would like to shag Superman and be Wonder Woman.


11. Favorite store to shop in? Just about the only store I now shop in is Park Slope Food Co-op, but I would love to be able to afford to shop in Liberty’s of London.

12. Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts? What do you order? I’m not really a great fan of either. I think their coffee is crap, but at least Dunkin do good deals and Starbucks does have a fair few tempting treats.
