My Podcast Interview with Director Kristin Hanggi
March 29, 2011 Leave a comment
This posting veers a bit astray from the film domain that Magic Lantern is primarily focused on — but still stays in the entertainment venue. This is my audio podcast interview with director, Kristin Hanggi who is a Tony Award nominee for her direction of the Broadway smash hit Rock of Ages. She has just directed the world premiere of the musical comedy And the Curtain Rises at the Tony Award-winning Signature Theatre in Arlington, Virginia. As the Theatre’s publicist, I had the opportunity — and the great pleasure — to sit down with Ms. Hanggi and have an in-depth discussion on her childhood, her work on Rock of Ages, and of course, her current project here at Signature Theatre. She also addresses her thoughts on what it means being a “female director” in what has been mainly known as a gentleman’s club on the Great White Way.
And the Curtain Rises plays at the Signature Theatre until April 10th. Book was written by Michael Slade; Music & Orchestrations by Joseph Thalken; Lyrics by Mark Campbell; Choreography by Josh Walden.
