MadonnaTribe Meets Peter Morse – Part Two
The second and last part of our extensive interview with Peter Morse, the lighting designer of many Madonna tours is finally available online here on MadonnaTribe. Among other things Mr Morse will be revealing which was his favourite scene from Truth Or Dare, a scene he was in but that got dropped from the final cut of the movie:
Peter Morse: One of my favourite scenes I should have been in got dropped.
The producer at the time called me one day saying “I want you to know one of my favourite scene got dropped from the black and white documentary footage” which is when we had our opening in Japan and in one of our first rehearsals in front of a partial audience, the first rehearsal with spotlights, we had a meeting in her dressing room right afterwards and it was a bit of a disaster (laughs).
There she confronted me and said “Peter what is going on with the spotlight? What is the story there?” and I replied “Japanese! they don’t understand me!, I know a little Japanese but not enough”.
She said: “Ah… ok, what will you do about that? What about an interpreter?” I said “well by the time the interpreter arrives…” you know it was a fun discussion, everyone was laughing. They loved the scene but it got dropped.
