Robert Egizio dances through culture

For years a fixture in Atlanta theater as an actor, choreographer and director, Robert Egizio (pictured, left) became the full-time producing artistic director of Stage Door Players in 2005. In Georgia Ensemble Theatre's two-actor play Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks, he shows off his love of acting and dance.

Why Do I Love These People? by Po Bronson: "After conducting hundreds of interviews, Bronson chronicles the lives of ordinary people, and the choices they made with regards to family. Every chapter recounts how individuals deal with the family dynamic, whether chosen or created." "This online musical-theater archive presents video clips of musical numbers from Broadway shows, featuring the original performers that were captured during live performances, Tony Awards broadcasts and even 'The Ed Sullivan Show.' A must for any musical-theater geek (like me)."

Scarcity: "This new play by Lucy Thurber deals with an American family struggling to exist within their means and, in some cases, looking for an escape. It explores a 'rich versus poor' mentality, and the sometimes-misguided perceptions of both."

Curtains: "In my CD player right now is the original cast album of the Broadway musical Curtains -- the last collaboration of John Kander and Fred Ebb. In preparing to present the Kander and Ebb show The World Goes Round later this year, I am listening to all of their shows from over the years."

"Slings and Arrows" on DVD: "This dark, comic Canadian TV series aired on the Sundance Channel and depicts the backstage goings on of a dysfunctional Shakespearean theater troupe. I've also been rediscovering the first season of 'Twin Peaks' on DVD. That theme music still gives me chills. And c'mon, Peggy Lipton serving pie and coffee, how great is that?"
