Q: Why was it so important for you to make a book musical out of Rockin with the Ages? The revues were very, very good.
I made ROCKIN a rock type show because in all my shows from now on I want to show all the different ways my senior cast can go and be vital, exciting and entertaining. Rockin 4 will show a completely new way.
Q: How did you select your creative team, like director, musical director, choreographer?I always PUT IT OUT THERE and people call and I try to choose those whose ideas are like mine ...to remember that AGE IS ONLY A NUMBER .
Q: Did you give your input into the storyline?
YES AND NO. I set the idea about how and where we should be located and a few ideas on songs, but BILL REID was great in writing the BOOK and MARK (RODRIGUEZ) is fantastic as a musical director and super as a piano man.
Q: How does the show symbolize your philosophy of living over the age of 60?IT'S NEVER OVER TILL IT'S REALLY OVER......AND I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS REALLY THE BEST OF TIMES IN ONE'S LIFE!
Q: Why were the songs selected rock songs instead of pop or Broadway, as those suited your cast so well?EACH show is different, as I said. JUST YOU WAIT TO SEE ROCKIN 4!
