a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

Just back from a wonderful trip to Hartford, Conn. and the great Hartford Stage Company. Under the Artistic Direction of Tony-Award-Winner Darko Tresnjak, the Hartford Stage has had a dazzling year.

“A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder” won the Tony for Best Musical and started there. They did a stunning production of “Hamlet” starring the youngest “Hamlet” I’ve ever seen Zach Appelman. And their world premiere of Matthew Lopez’ “Reverberation” about queer bashing just knocked my  theater-going socks off.

Darko is currently in rehearsal for his revival of “Kiss Me Kate” which opens in Hartford on May 14 and plays til June 14. After which it goes to San Diego to the scenic Old Globe theater there. The same journey that “Gentleman’s Guide” took on its’ way to Broadway. Will “Kiss Me Kate” follow the same path?

This is part one of a two part interview with the trail-blazing Darko. Enjoy!
