Theater Talk airs twice a month on Stateside.


Music bio shows take center stage this month on Theater Talk.

Today, David Kiley of Encore Michigan brought Stateside the current offerings from professional theater companies around the state. 

Listen above, or take a look here:

Correction: An earlier version of this post stated that the performance at Meadow Brook Theatre was to feature Peggy Lee. The musical is, in fact, about Rosemary Clooney. We deleted the reference and regret the error. 


Support for arts and culture coverage comes in part from the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
