OLD WICKED SONGS: Jon Marans' Pulitzer-Nominated Play at Bristol Riverside Theatre

Two musicians discover secrets about one another - and learn about themselves - through their work on a song cycle by 19th-century German composer Robert Schumann.  WRTI's Susan Lewis considers this award-winning drama about the power of music to bridge differences.

Susan writes and produces stories about music and the arts. She’s host and producer of WRTI’s TIME IN online interview series, and contributes weekly intermission interviews for The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert series. She’s also been a regular host of WRTI’s Live from the Performance Studio sessions.
