The Sound of Applause celebrates the visual and performing arts, explores cultural trends, and examines current events through an artistic lens.
Dee Perry unveils the new Cleveland Museum of Art exhibition - Van Gogh Repetitions - with CMA curator William Robinson. Plus Dan Polletta speaks with National Book Award winner James McBride about his new book The Good Lord Bird and his return to his alma mater - Oberlin College. And we raise the curtain on the new production from Theater Ninjas - [sic] by Melissa James Gibson.
