The Music Man is coming to town, right here in River City, also known as Ukiah, California.
In this program Radio Curious visits with Reid Edelman, the producer and director of the musical extravaganza. Edelman is a professor of Theater Arts at the Mendocino College in Ukiah, California. This production of the Music Man, presented by the Mendocino College Theatre Arts Department and Ukiah Civic Light Opera, involves more than 100 people from the Ukiah community. It opens April 12 and plays through April 21, 2013 at the Mendocino College Center Theater on the Ukiah campus. For more information call (707) 462 9155.
I met with Reid Edelman in the Radio Curious studios on March 29, 2013 and began our visit when I asked him: Why the Music Man?
The book Reid Edelman recommends is “Improv: Improvisation and the Theatre,” by Keith Johnstone.
