Click through for our interview with Rogers & Hammerstein's The Sound of Music's Maria.
Through this Sunday don't miss out on The Sound of Music at Bass Hall in Fort Worth. The production returns once again to our state and our metroplex. The touring company has visited Austin, Houston, and Dallas at the beginning of the tour last November. Back at the start of the tour I spoke w/ Kerstin Anderson, the star College student picked by Director Jack O'Brien to play Maria. Kerstin and I talked back then about her diving into a traveling Broadway tour, about PACE University, Kerstin's favorite TV show and films, and Area Codes (specifically the 802 up in Vermont). Here is that interview. I spoke with Kerstin earlier this week and this time we chatted mostly about coffee. Enjoy the wonderfully witty and excited Kerstin Anderson. BTW Kerstin Maria is a fun entertaining character filled with a truthful growth that is maximized by the tremendous vocal showcase. Kerstin kicks ass! Now here is my second chat with 802 and now The Big Apple's Kerstin Anderson.
Kerstin broke down the amazing amount of travel of the show since last we talked in November and she's even learned some valuable traveling tricks.
I asked Kerstin about how much she has learned and experienced from playing Maria for such a fun lengthy tour.
She brought up the valuable lessons learned not only from her Director Jack O'Brien but also her cast and crew.
Now I did pry and ask for some of her favorite highlights to the tour so far. She brought up Houston's otherworldly famous ground control and a kick ass museum in St. Louis.
And the before-mentioned coffee? Well Kerstin is a coffee nut. She loves a good cup of Joe. Of course we chatted about Texans own love of quality coffee house joints.
Kerstin had fun talking about the unique feeling of watching the Tony Awards this year.
And finally I asked Kerstin to look into the future. I wanted to know what she most is looking forward to doing when she finally makes it home to NYC.
Don't miss out the wonderful lavish beauty of The Sound of Music mixed in w/ the pending doom of what tomorrow holds. Quality show now at the always beautiful and grand Bass Hall. For more information please go, here.
