Podcast: A listen back with Terry Dodd

In honor of director and playwright Terry Dodd, who died of a heart attack on Oct. 12, we take a listen back to John Moore’s 2006 Running Lines podcast interview with Dodd, who was about to open Tracy Letts’ The Man from Nebraska for the Lake Dillon Theatre Company.

Dodd would later be nominated for The Denver Post’s “Best Season by a Director” Ovation Award for a year that also included The Holdup; The Smell of the Kill; Private Eyes; The Caretaker; I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change and The Weir. A celebration of Dodd’s life will be held on Monday, Nov. 28, at the Arvada Center.
