In recent jukebox musicals, Abba songs aided a girl’s quest to find her father and the work of Queen is the soundtrack for a futuristic world owned by a corporation. 2Pac: the musical takes most of Tupac’s hits and follows Puck, Wally, and two China Wok employees as they try achieve their dreams in the food court of an Indiana mall.

After years of denial, Kiley has finally admitted to baring a striking resemblance to Velma from Scooby Doo. Instead of traveling in a van hunting ghosts, she prefers wandering on foot in search of tacos, cheap beer, and fake birds. Growing up in Portland, Kiley enjoyed the balance of urban and green spaces. Then she spent her four years at Ithaca College, and found herself craving more sprawling asphalt in her life. So she moved to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where most of the buildings look like they're about to collapse. Kiley's favorite activities include: getting lost, crafting, sewing, biking, and geeking out at museums. Her love of taxidermy probably makes her a terrible vegetarian, but she doesn't care.
