Pipeline Theatre Company: What attracted you to Beardo? What made you want to work on this project?
Aaron Lindenberg: Beardo’s music snagged me right away! What a weird and wonderful combination of styles, and a totally fresh lyrical approach to musical theater writing. Once I saw the church where it was being performed, I knew something totally unique was going to happen there.
PTC: What draws you to working on music?
AL: Being the Music Assistant, I help our fabulous Music Director (Ian Axness) unfold so much gorgeous, complex music for a cast of supremely talented actors. As a singer-songwriter, I get to learn so much about the composition and logistics of putting together a big piece like Beardo.
PTC: If you ruled the world, what would you be remembered for?
AL: Being compassionate and redecorating often.
PTC: Why should someone who has no connection to this show or its artists come see the show?
AL: Because this show is brimming with talent! Everyone involved is a total talent, from the cast to the directors, to the production team to the band, and so on! This show is made of 100% love and everyone who sees it will know exactly what I mean!
PTC: If you could create a promotional tagline for this show, what would it be?
AL: There’s weird in his beard.
