31: When You Talk About Music

31: When You Talk About Music

Aug 9, 1996
Stories of people whose lives are transformed by music.
  • Dael Orlandersmith's funny, moving story from her Obie-award winning show Beauty's Daughters. Though she's an African-American woman, she transforms herself in this story into a loudmouthed Italian guy. At a wedding, this character meets a woman who reminds him of who he was before he got married and had kids: a guy who loved jazz, a different guy than he is now. Recorded at Millie's Orchid Show in Chicago. Thanks to Brigid Murphy. (12 minutes)
