Bill Pullman on Visionbox, Healing Wars, and the importance of having a place to experiment

While many people might recognize Bill Pullman as Lone Starr in Spaceballs or the President in Independence Day, the movie star is also an accomplished stage actor who's passionate about helping the performing arts. He'll be at the L2 Arts & Culture Center tonight to support Visionbox, the Denver actors' studio designed to help locals develop their craft.

We spoke with Pullman about his involvement with Visionbox, his new multimedia piece Healing Wars, and how important it is for actors to have a space to experiment:

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
