Interviewing Darlene Love

I talked with Darlene last night through the miracle of modern technology.  Over the Internet, we were able to chat – with me in Ohio and Darlene some thousands of miles away in Australia.  She’s preparing for the opening of Fame: The Musical in Melbourne.  The morning we talked, she was a little tired from a late-night practice.  Later that day were more practices, a dress rehearsal, and finally, the opening night of the show.  I felt honored that she took time to talk with us with such a busy schedule.

Although it was certainly nice to chat, trying to conduct an interview over the Internet can be dicey.  There were several instances where her voice was a little jumbled.  Keep that in mind when you listen to the show.  However, it’s a small price to pay to actually talk with such a special lady.
