WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Spend a day with Pulitzer Prize winning composer and chief music critic for the New York Herald Tribune, Virgil Thomson, as he runs the world of music from his bed in the Chelsea Hotel. Thomson is considered to be one of the most remarkable, influential and controversial artists in the history of contemporary American music. In this new play with music, eight of Thomson's art songs and several of his piano portraits are part of this kaleidoscopic portrait of a man and a time when the world of modern art and music exploded.
