Friday, November 13th, I recorded an interview with Cindy Mich from Art is Alive, which she has now posted on her Blog Talk Radio webpage and YouTube (see below). We talked for nearly 90 minutes about my short film musical adaptation “The Tell-Tale Heart – a musicabre“, working with my husband Edward Elder, cracking the “adaptation code” on my next Poe musicabre “The Pit and the Pendulum”, being effected by the Covid pandemic, and some of my other musicals “Speakeasy – John and Jane’s Adventures in the Wonderland“, “I Too Sing America – The Blues According to Langston Hughes” and “beTwixt, beTween & beTWAIN“. (Cindy tried to get me to pick my favorite, as if I could choose my favorite child; but yes, now I feel guilty about my musicals I didn’t get to talk about – bad father, bad father!). As well as IMDb, the Judy Garland Award, tales out of school (literally, as in NYU Drama), meeting Zhang Yimou and Gong Li in China in 1989, and much more.

Give it a listen (the interview starts at the 5:35 minute mark):
