Katrina's Nine Lives

Monday, February 28, 2011

Dan Baum went to New Orleans to cover Hurricane Katrina, but he ended up writing about the colorful people and the outsized culture of the city. The story became a book and now it’s a musical with songs by composer Paul Sanchez. They both join us to talk about the strange journey of the piece called "Nine Lives." Plus: stage and TV actor Michael Cerveris is helping to produce the upcoming musical. He joins us with a live performance.

Boy that song "Joanne" was painful. It was like something you'd hear some earnest not very talented young transplant from the midwest belting out in Union Square with dreams of being the new Bob Dylan.
