“Murder most foul” will again be our subject! The cast of Masquerade Theatre’s new production of Sweeney Todd performs live for us songs from Stephen Sondheim’s unique musical about olde London’s homicidal “Demon Barber of Fleet Street.” . . . And writer James R. Benn speaks with us about his first novel, Billy Boyle. . .
. . .It’s the story of a young Irish rookie detective on the Boston Police Force who is taken into the army and whisked off to Europe in the days immediately following Pearl Harbor to help his new commander, General Dwight D. Eisenhower, solve the mysterious assassination of a Norwegian government official. . . .
And we’ll talk with two members of the Austin-based experimental theater troupe, Rude Mechanicals, who have brought to Houston’s DiverseWorks their production of Get Your War On, a stage adaptation of the on-line political comic strip that is sarcastically critical of the Bush administration’s foreign policies.
Join us each weekday afternoon at 3:00 for an up-close look at the Houston area arts scene on The Front Row.
