Interview with Richard Kline (Larry Dallas from Three's Company) on role as Liberace and more

I had the absolute honour of being able to interview Richard Kline for my blog. Richard played the character of Larry Dallas, the sleazy used car salesman and best friend of Jack Tripper (John Ritter) on my favourite sitcom, Three's Company, and when I heard he is about to star in a Broadway production of All That Glitters, about Liberace, I fired off an email asking him for an interview. I was overjoyed when he replied to say I may send him questions - many people don't bother to reply - and was even more happy when I actually did get answers to my questions. The mark of a gentleman is to stick to your word and treat everybody with respect. So it's with extreme gratitude that I can bring you this once in a lifetime piece.

PS: You are about to star in All That Glitters,  the story of Liberace, as Liberace! Liberace was a flamboyant character and the role will involve singing and playing the piano – how are you enjoying this multifaceted role?

Boys in the Band

Boys in the Band are one of Australia's top musical ensembles, and I got to see and meet them!  It was opening night, and it was the first time I've ever attended an opening night, of anything. We had front row centre seats. It couldn't get any better!! But it did. The show was incredible! We saw it at the wonderful newly revamped Joburg Theatre, and the venue outdid itself in catering for this diverse show. And yes there is safe paid parking, underground. Go there.
