“I guess I’ve learned bits and pieces from just about everything I’ve done. But, still I’m not kidding when I say I have periodic bouts of fear about what I’m doing. I deal with. I come out OK.
Right now, in the middle of Dancin’, the fear’s minimal. One of the reasons is that it’s not a big Broadway musical in the financial sense. It’s relatively simple, not a million dollar zinger. It’s a big modest Broadway musical, emphasis on modest. It’s a bit easier to work without all that heavy financial pressure. The show’s in three acts, with simple but effective scenery. The three acts are not just for innovation. The cast is made up of 18 very hardworking dancers and they need the intermissions to recoup. There’s no book, just a series of dance pieces some telling a story, some existing for themselves.”
