 Here's what they had to say about their relationship and the fun of the project.

Q:How are you today?

Kate Monster: I'm really great, thank you.

Q: What has been the highlight of this play for you?

Kate Monster: I think the highlight has been like, um, learning a lot about Princeton. We have a really - it's  a bumpy relationship isn't it? [turns to Princeton for affirmation]

Princeton: Yeah, sorta.

Q: When you say bumpy what do you mean?

Kate Monster: Well, he breaks my heart.

Princeton: Not on purpose.

Kate Monster: No but you were trying to find your purpose and that's why you broke up with me.

Princeton:  I said I was sorry. I'm so sorry.

Kate Monster: We made up.That's the point. We're together now.

Princeton: But you said, ah, what's the highlight of this play? I don't understand. This isn't a play.

Kate Monster: No Princeton, it's like what's the best part about this whole show?

Princeton: Show? This is my life here we're talking about!

Kate Monster: Yeah, he decided to write this about his life and that's expressed at the end of the play. Princeton! Come on, you must have an answer.

Princeton: Well, I guess finding my purpose was fun, it was an adventure in itself, but I don't know, everything was just so fantastic.

Kate Monster: It really is fantastic and like the whole cast gets together and it's fun, it's really fun. It's sad,  but it's fun.''
