Meet the People of Pippin Part 3

By • Feb 12th, 2009 • Category: Interviews, Pippin

Joshua Daniels, Pippin

Q: How are you like or unlike your character?
A: Like Pippin, I’m constantly driven to search for great things in life; however, I’m not too driven to notice when I have something great.

Q: How long have you been acting (directing, playing your instrument, etc…)? What was your first role?
A: I’ve been acting since I was 14 when I played the cab driver E.J. Lofgren in my high school production of Harvey.

Q: What role would you kill to play?
A: The Phantom. Because it is mine. That is all.

Q: What’s been the most challenging part of participating in Pippin?
A: The songs have been the most challenging part, simply because I do not usually sing in this particular style.

Q: What’s your next show or production?
A: Hopefully you will find me at the Pennsylvania Rennaissance Faire!

Q: What superpower would you want to have?
A: Teleportation would be nice, ’cause then I could visit Valerie on long tours, although I could do the same thing and more with flight. Telekinesis would be my second choice, I think.

Q: What non-theater-related life goal do you have?
A: You mean there’s something in life BESIDES theatre?

Q: What is your dream vacation?
A: A month long trip with Valerie through Italy Ireland, then Paris…. and do I really need to tell you why?

Q: Would you rather have $1,000,000 or know the date you are going to die?
A: I’d rather have the million, then we can go on that dream vacation!

Q: What candy bar are you most like?
A: Baby Ruth; I’m sweet, but very nutty!

Q: Would you rather have a kangaroo or a giraffe?
A: A kangaroo; they’re more portable.

Q: If you could go back to high school but keep all the life lessons you’ve learned since your time in high school, would you do it?
A: Well, when you put it THAT way… NO.

Nancy Daugherty, Ensemble/wrath

Q: How long have you been acting (directing, playing your instrument, etc…)? what was your first role?

Q: What role would you kill to play?
A: The girl I am meant to be.

Q: What’s been the most challenging part of participating in Pippin?
A: Dancing with an old body.

Q: What’s your next show or production?
A: Designing sets for Annie, Get Your Gun at Fauquier Community Theatre.

Q: What superpower would you want to have?

A: Not being on stage.

Q: What’s your next show or production?
A: Don’t know yet.

Q: What superpower would you want to have?

Q: What non-theater-related life goal do you have?
