Kristin Hanggi – Director of Rock of Ages Talks to Rock-Zone UK

May 5, 2014

Yeah, yeah I know – I’m obsessed with Rock of Ages. The thing is, I had a feeling I would love it and I was right. Not just that, I love the fact that serious musical critics seem to have missed the point -do you really think that the bands in the early/mid/late 80s (very specific, that’s me!) didn’t see the funny side too? Anyway, I digress – the importantest news of the year was that, despite closing in the West End (sacrilege!) in February, May was going to see the start of the show touring the UK …. and even better was it was to open in Manchester (surprise – you thought I was going to say The Railway Venue didn’t you?). So far I ambooked to see it three times during opening week! To quote Franz “Oopsy”, how did that happen?

Kristin-Hanggi-09Just before opening night, original director Kristin Hanggi was kind enough to spend some time chatting to Mr Fanboy himself, and the results are here:

A really fun interview to do – well it was for me. Many thanks to Kristin and get your tickets for the tour. It really will be the best night you will have in a theatre.
