Lewis Wilkenfeld, of the Cabrillo Music Theatre, speaks with Our Ventura TV host, Howard Leader, about his role as an artistic director of musical theatre, which combines songs, dialogue, acting, and dance. The story and emotional content of the piece – humor, pathos, love, anger – are communicated through the words, music, movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole.
Wilkenfeld also talks about what makes a good show, as well as a good season and talks about how they entertain the local troops Bob Hope style.
