Let us Now Praise Susan Sontag by Sibyl Kempson

An irrational musical contemplation of the ethical pitfalls of the collision of art and journalism. This is a story of an over-related family of sharecroppers mired in desperate poverty who are visited, interviewed, and photographed by two live-in reporters from the “big city.” With help from the journals of Symbolist painter Odilon Redon, The NEW American Machinists Handbook, and ancient Assyrian mythological seals from the JP Morgan collection, and then shoved into the strict alchemical procedure of the Broadway musical.

This event is closed to the public.
