Tomell: In addition to live theater, you're also a filmmaker?
Bailey: I studied at the graduate level in Los Angeles. I worked … in movies and TV shows. [When I] got the opportunity to direct my own film, I decided to move back to Chicago to make my first feature-length film. Right now, that's finishing up post-production and we'll probably have a premiere on streaming services in 2019.
Tomell: What's it about?
Bailey: It's a dramedy – "Rink – about a small-town misfit who has aspirations of becoming an expert roller-skating [competitor]. I wrote and directed.
