Scott Shiller, newly appointed as just the second CEO in Denver Center for the Performing Arts history, had his first day on the job March 31. After a whirlwind day of greetings and meetings, he attended the opening performance of the national touring production of "Motown, the Musical," playing at the Buell Theatre through April 19. Shiller talks about his whirlwind day, which included meeting Denver First Lady and accomplished performer Mary Louise Lee, who made her professional stage debut at the Garner Galleria Theatre (then called StageWest) at the DCPA when she was just 18, and "Motown" star Allison Semmes (Diana Ross). Shiller also will attend the DCPA Theatre Company's "One Night in Miami" as well as Friday's world premiere of the new rock musical "The 12," which imagines what happened to the disciples during the three days following their leader's death. Shiller begins his full-time duties as CEO on May 1. For ticket information to any DCPA show, call 303-893-4100.
