Description: As the better half of a self-destructive boy "toy" - her Johnny (John Gallagher Jr.) tinkers at life with less gusto than he brings to his guitar - "Whatserame" is the rhyme and reason of why this messed-up musician should exchange his needle for knee-bending gratitude of her love. She is a beta blocker for this alpha male's stinted and stunted self-evoked heartache, going from punk to pills to pallbearer for his own death wish.Nothing unusual in her choice of work and award-worthy turns: "How lucky I feel to.be in these beautiful plays," she says of her bio brimming with offBroadway and Broadway credits (as well as the Spike Lee film version of "Passing Strange"), "all about identity, family, religion, sexuality.""I love the fact that 'Whatsername' is in a 'who knows?' place," affirms [Rebecca Naomi Jones], "but I feel she has put herself in a direction after all - that she's on her way."
