In this episode, Tommy sits down with Interlochen alumni Dane Laffrey and Michael Arden following the Oct. 25 preview event for the duo’s latest production, Once on this Island. Once roommates at Interlochen, Michael, the director, and Dane, the scenic designer, are frequent collaborators on stages both on and off Broadway. Their interpretation of Ahrens and Flaherty’s musical Once on this Island opens at Circle in the Square Theatre on Dec. 3. Join Tommy, Michael and Dane for a discussion on working in the round, diversity in theatre and how Interlochen shaped their careers. The second half of the episode features newly released historical audio from composer Aaron Copland’s 1967 visit to Interlochen.
