Apparently the Bard was quite popular in hotels, riverboats and mining camps, so a new production of his comedy "The Taming Of The Shrew" is set on the western frontier, and features music drawn from 19th century songs and from Italian opera. Director Arin Arbus, composer/arranger Michael Friedman and the cast join us to perform live.

The Atlantic Yards project began with grand ambitions for a basketball arena, skyscrapers and housing in Brooklyn. It ended up dividing communities – and inspiring a musical called “In the Footprint: The Battle Over Atlantic Yards.” Writer and director Steven Cosson and composer Michael Friedman talk about turning community activism and state-agency acronyms into music. And, the cast performs songs from the show live in our studio.
