Beverly Hills, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/21/2015 -- Dana Stackpole is a dancer and actress who has appeared in several movies and Braodway shows, including Gods and Generals (2003), Hey, Mr. Producer! The Musical World of Cameron Mackintosh (1998), Contact (2002) and Carousel (1994). She was also a member of the world famous American Ballet Theatre under Mikhail Baryshnikov before she moved into Broadway and film. She recently appeared on the James Barbour Now show where she was interviewed by host James Barbour about her life, her career and her commitment to good health.
During the interview, Stackpole discussed the hip surgery that she underwent after an injury tore a muscle. She chose to have the surgery under local rather than general anesthesia due to her commitment to using the least invasive methods to protect her health. She also discussed being out of work for three months and how difficult it was to remain sedentary during that time. She missed the Tony Awards and other important events, but she knew that she must take care of her health first. Physical therapy helped, and she was able to recover completely from her injury.
Stackpole also discussed life as part of the movie and theater industries. As she notes, juggling marriage, children and a career is not easy, but her love for what she does makes it worthwhile.
Host James Barbour, seen at http://www.meetup.com/members/188130401/, who also happens to be Stackpole's husband, is a star in his own right. He is currently playing the lead in Phantom of the Opera on Broadway and has starred in many other roles in both regional and national theater.
