Q: What is it that you like about playing larger-than-life characters, as with your alter ego Maddie on “Kirstie”?

A: I love “Auntie Mame,” and I love “All About Eve.” I could go on and on about the movies and the characters I love. I wanted to play that, and it’s funny because in real life, I’m sort of the godmother to everybody’s kids. And I think, “Why did they choose me?”

I’m eccentric, and I’m not cozy with kids. I’m like, “All right, what do you want for lunch?” Or, “Why would you do something like that?” With the characters I liked when I looked at films growing up, the women were powerful and sort of crazy.

Q: Since you play a stage star in “Kirstie,” what are your own thoughts about working on or going to Broadway?

A: My idea of the theater is like the way we’ve created it in the show, where everyone’s rich and out every night and having dinner at Sardi’s. I like the romance and the drama of it ... but frankly, when I go to the theater when I’m in New York, I’d just like to give a note to people: “Do not wear flip-flops or shorts or ‘I Love NY’ T-shirts!”

I get that you’re buying the ticket, so you have the right to do that, but I think that people need more reverence and respect for the theater. It can be an opportunity for people to do something that they wouldn’t do otherwise, which is to get really dressed up, to have a nice dinner and go to the theater. I love the tradition of it.
