This edition: "KPOP" and Fall Season Preview Pt.2Tweet
Original tape date: September 29, 2017.
First aired: October 16, 2017.
We delve into new musical “KPOP,” with co-conceiver and librettist Jason Kim, director Teddy Bergman of Woodshed Collective, and Ars Nova Artistic Director Jason Eagan discuss who discuss creating this unique production with co-hosts Susan Haskins and theater critic Elisabeth Vincentelli. The immersive show is set in a pop music factory in the USA where Korean music producers are obsessively trying to mold young Korean performers into pop stars in America. The show shares the conflicts of the many characters involved, as well as their captivating music.
Next, we continue last week's conversation previewing the fall theater season with Michael Musto, Patrick Pacheco, Elisabeth Vincentelli, and guest co-host Jesse Green. They discuss John Leguizamo's “Latin History For Morons,” “Time and the Conways,” “Torch Song,” “The Wolves,” “Oedipus el Rey” and more.
