Video: Christopher Lew

In her Proust Questionnaire series, Betsy Lewis talks to actor Christopher Lew.

published Wednesday, February 19, 2020

Welcome to A Little Dreaming is Dangerous: The Proust Questionnaire Offstage, an occasional series on TheaterJones that's based on the Proust Questionnaire, a series of questions that inform about the interviewee's personality. It was popularized by the French author Marcel Proust more than 130 years ago. Questions include "what historical figure do you most identify with," ""who is your favorite fictional villain," or "where would you like to die"?

This video series is a collaboration between Betsy Lewis, a Dallas-based journalist, and videographer Jon Collins. Lewis uses prompts from various versions of the Proust Questionnaire, and throws in a few questions of her own. The interview subjects will be folks in the performing arts community in North Texas.

Next is actor, educator and community engager Christopher Lew. Known in the community as "Clew," he has appeared in productions at Stage West, Theatre Three, Very Good Dance Theatre, Shakespeare in the Bar, and elsewhere. Next he is in Lynn Nottage's 2018 play Mlima's Tale, in which the ghost of a poached elephant haunts everyone involved with the act and the sale of its ivory. It runs Feb. 21 through March 14 (with preview performances Feb. 19-20) in Bryant Hall on the campus of Kalita Humphreys Theater. It's directed by Tiana Kaye Blair.
