Meet the Artist: Sveta Tenges

305741_143935065788207_227211897_nI remember first meeting Sveta last Spring and thinking “I wish her name was Svetlana, then I could sing her the song ‘Svetlana sucks lemons across from me.’”  It wasn’t until this November that I discover that she name is in fact Svetlana!  Oh the Joy I felt knowing I could sing that song out loud.  Anyway, if you know Sveta you know she is a spaz, but a loveable spaz who can get down to business when building a set.  Wayne and I didn’t know where this tiny blonde came from, but we didn’t mind that she chose to spend her time on Stage Crew.
