CMJ: Can you describe your role on TIGHTROPE in one sentence?
DW: I sculpt in four dimensions with an intangible medium, allowing the audience to see the story being told, while hopefully communicating to them on a completely different level.
CMJ: How did you hear about TIGHTROPE?
DW: I got an e-mail one day from Jay saying hey come play with us!
CMJ: What interests or excites you about working on this story?
DW: the poetry of the piece and the talent of my collaborators.
CMJ: When was your 1st Time seeing Theatre?
DW: I have seen theater for longer than I can remember… I remember my first broadway show at 7 (Oklahoma!) , my first opera at 9 (Magic Flute*), My first Sondheim at 14 (Sweeney Todd). But I remember seeing Theater in the park from before I can remember what shows they were, and ballets and concerts with my family very early.
