Io sono Calabrese, quindi sono testadura..
Sono testadura. The "Basta" is my mother's maiden name. It became my stage name and then my middle name after I started writing for the theater. I've kept it because it is a way of honoring that side of my family, whom I feel very close to.
I was born in the midwest, but came of age in Brooklyn, which is home.
