• Multi-talented as an artist, actor, designer and musician, Miriam Suzanne has roots in Brian Freeland’s LIDA Project, which brought an era of bracing experimental theater to Denver before Freeland moved to New York four years ago. But she’s also gone solo over the years with theatrical colleagues Julie Rada and Kenny Storms, most currently working under the title of Grapefruit Lab, while also performing with the band Teacup Gorilla and creating Riding Sidesaddle*, a morphing book project composed on interchangeable index cards. As Grapefruit Lab prepares to premiere its first effort, JANE/EYRE, we invited Suzanne to speak up via the 100CC questionnaire.
