American Theatre Company Presents "Sunday in the Park with George"

ATC-Image.jpg
Aired on Friday, February 15th.

On this edition of ST, we're discussing a new production being offered by the Tulsa-based American Theatre Company. It's "Sunday in the Park with George," the Stephen Sondheim masterpiece, which will run from tonight (Friday the 15th) through the 24th at the Tulsa PAC. Based on the familiar Seurat painting, "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte," this landmark musical -- which won a Pulitzer Prize and was nominated for ten Tony Awards -- blends the past and the present into a dreamy, beautiful meditation on life, love, and why human beings strive to create art. Our guest is Meghan Hurley, who is directing this show.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
