16 Minutes with Jonathan Crimeni
Photographing the artists of Intiman Theatre: 34 of 35
Q&A with actor Jonathan Crimeni
PhotoSister: The Beatles or Elvis?
Jonathan Crimeni: The Beatles. Hands down The Beatles. I can’t believe this is actually a question!
PS: What is your favorite restaurant pick in Seattle and the best dish on the menu?
JC: Oh boy. Um…wow. This is a tough one but Poppy on Capitol Hill has been my favorite restaurant for a bit now. The 10 item thali that adjusts seasonally is probably one of the best meals you can get in this city. Also the late-night naanwich is awesome!
PS: What made you want to do theatre?
JC: I think theatre made me want to do theatre. Stay with me on this one. The idea of everyone sharing a single event is extremely incredible and magical. I come from an athletic background so that shared event has always been a part of my life, but the power of community and that continuous reach for bringing old and new worlds to life are what pulled me into this world.
PS: What do you fear the most?
JC: Such loaded questions. Why not ask me what my favorite herb to cook with is…which happens to be Basil by the way…umm, anyway. I know it sounds ridiculous but I fear the point when I have become satisfied. We search for satisfaction all the time, so I am just curious as to what happens if we are finally satisfied. As a theatre artist, it is terrifying!
PS: What makes you happy?
JC: Family, Friends, Food and Drinks all together at a big table sharing stories, arguing, laughing and celebrating life together. Cheesy I know…but it is so awesome!
