Examiner.com has recently published a GREAT interview with Dane Stokinger, cast as Jerry Lukowski in our production of THE FULL MONTY.
Here is an excerpt:
Examiner.com: Is it tough or easy to look awkward during those strip routine practice sessions? I’ve always heard the hardest part of the show is those pull-away pants.
Dane Stokinger: With the choreography, it is a bit tricky because it has to look good but it can’t look like a bunch of trained dancers. Jerry Dixon and Bojohn Disciple have done such a great job doing that: making it look more “athletic” then “dancey.” In regards to the pants, I found that by the time they are about to leave the stage and the six of us remain, the audience is so rowdy that I never realized any issues. It is a bit of an adrenaline rush.
