Meet the Crew: Zach Winston, Assistant Director

Meet Zach Winston, who actually performed in Vagabond’s first production many moons ago! Zach says that if he weren’t in theatre, he’d definitely be in professional wrestling.

If you could go on a date with one celebrity, who would it be and why?
Gotta go with my first celebrity crush – Emma Watson. I’m not even a huge Harry Potter fan, but I find nothing more adorable than the uptight bookworm.

Do you think celebrating Valentine’s Day is corny?
Yes, unless there’s chocolate involved. No flowers, no cards, no romantic dinners, just chocolate. After all, nothing say “thank you for putting up with my crap” like chocolate.

What is the best gift you ever received from a significant other?
Nothing anyone wants to hear about. Trust me on this one. 

What’s your favorite love (or anti-love) song? Why?
If you haven’t heard it already, do yourself a favor – Go to YouTube and look up Crosby, Stills & Nash’s performance of “Suite: Judy Blue Eyes” at Woodstock. Such a great love story. You’ll thank me later.
