Terry Johnson came in to APS to work with a group of 12 singers, applying various techniques and methods he used, particularly while directing La Cage aux Folles. His enthusiasm, boundless energy and imagination and sometimes off the wall ideas, meant the workshop was not only inspiring to both those participating in the masterclass as well as the observers, but it was also tremendous fun.
