Present at the Creation:Three Visits to a Creator's Workshop-Turning a Life into a Play
Start Date: 2/1/2011Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Date: 2/1/2011End Time: 8:30 PM
Event Description
Terry Teachout, drama critic of The Wall Street Journal and the author of acclaimed biographies of Louis Armstrong, George Balanchine, and H. L. Mencken, is working simultaneously on three creative projects—each in a different medium. In this series of public presentations, he’ll show how a biography, an opera libretto, and a play move from conception to completion.

 
Event 3--Turning a Life into a Play
 
Teachout started writing his first play, a one-man show based on Pops: A Life of Louis Armstrong, during his 20010 visit to the Winter Park Institute. Now Satchmo at the Waldorf is moving toward its first commercial production. In collaboration with the drama department of Rollins College, Teachout will present the first public performance of staged excerpts from Satchmo at the Waldorf and talk about the process of transforming a best-selling biography into a one-man play.
