GA Voice - - Out­spo­ken -

You ap­ply and you wait and wait. So when we ap­plied we were hope­ful, but re­gional the­aters do not pro­duce this show very of­ten, be­cause it is so hard to cast. It’s never been pro­duced in the state, by a pro­fes­sional com­pany. It’s al­ways been on my short­list to pro­duce and the stars all aligned.

How did you find your cast? ‘Miss Saigon’

of it and have some sim­ple, real, in­ti­mate scenes.

Are there any gay cast/crew mem­bers?

Two of the ac­tors are gay and one of the en­sem­ble mem­bers. Of course, I am gay, as is chore­og­ra­pher Bubba Carr and the mu­si­cal di­rec­tor Chris Brent Davis.

Tell us about the he­li­copter.

We are hav­ing our first re­hearsal to­day. We’ll be land­ing it every night. I think it will be a very cool mo­ment. It’s im­por­tant to note - the show would be in­cred­i­ble with­out the he­li­copter. The he­li­copter is a cherry, but it’s not a play about a he­li­copter.

What can LGBT au­di­ences get from the show?
