ANTHONY DEAN GRIFFEY
SDNN theater critic Pat Launer sat down with tenor Anthony Dean Griffey, between rehearsals for the Benjamin Britten opera, “Peter Grimes.” He talks about how he approaches a complex acting/singing role like the title character, and how he takes his mind off the intensive preparation by watching cartoons.
