An interview is all about the person being interviewed.
A good interviewer knows this, and doesn’t always stick to the script of prepared questions, especially if she feels the conversation is naturally going somewhere more interesting.
An inexperienced or less skilled interviewer sometimes makes the interview about themselves, but this rarely produces a good outcome for anyone.
This is true in the fields of journalism, recruitment and entertainment.
We decided to include a couple of short interviews with regular theme night and teenage theme night participants in next Thursday’s show. To let you all get to know a bit better some of the performers you are used to seeing on stage and online.
And while they were too short this time to deviate too far from the script, if you enjoy them we might try some slightly longer form interviews in the future.
