Meet the cast video series: Darrie Lawrence

In this ongoing series, we briefly introduce you to the actors performing in our plays in a fun way. Episode 79: Meet Darrie Lawrence, a member of the inaugural DCPA Theatre Company in 1979 who is back in Denver for the first time since 1984 to star as Helen in the world premiere staging of Appoggiatura. Lawrence talks about the early days playing opposite Tyne Daly, Delroy Lindo and others. How did she get into all of this in the first place? “I love being the center of attention!” she says with a laugh. Appoggiatura plays through Feb. 22 in the Ricketson Theatre.
