The Sound of Applause celebrates the visual and performing arts, explores cultural trends, and examines current events through an artistic lens.
Dee Perry shares her conversation with former Great Lakes Theater artistic director Gerald Freedman and his protege Vicky Bussert. Plus we meet a rising star of New York theater who's originally from Lakewood - Dave Malloy - creator of the off-Broadway hit Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812. And we hear from the president of The Chautauqua Institution - Tom Becker - who comes to Cleveland tonight to speak at South Franklin Circle.
