I had a wonderful time researching, interviewing, and preparing this article on Marc Robin and Curt Dale Clark’s body of fifteen original musicals. You can read the piece in the August issue of SCENE 4 Magazine at the link above. Scene 4 is a wonderful, multi-media monthly arts journal with an international circulation. I will post the article on my blog when the rights revert to me in September.
Writing has kept me busy this February, as winter hopefully winds down here in Maine. My new short story collection, Carousel, is out and available, and I have several book talks scheduled this spring. Even more exciting is that the concluding story from the collection, “The Promise of Saint Michel,” appears in the March issue of Scene 4 Magazine. Last month’s scene 4 carried my piece on the Maine poet Edwin Arlington Robinson and his connections to Gardiner. And in addition to the usual Fanfare reviews and Broadway World pieces, I had the opportunity to interview Anita Stewart (Portland Stage) and Curt Dale Clark (Maine State Music Theatre) about their exciting upcoming collaboration this August: a co-production of Frank McCourt’s The Irish and How They Got That Way.
