Author/playwright Dr. Lawrence McCullough is our guest this week. Fairfield’s Way Off Broadway, Iowa’s only professional musical theater company, is currently running the production, “Orphan Train”, which is based on the book Lawrence wrote about New York orphans sent to live in Iowa. The musical runs through Aug 12th. Gov. Terry Branstadt has declared Aug 12 as Iowa Orphan Commemoration Day.
An accomplished musician and composer, Dr. McCullough has recorded on 34 albums and performed on film and television soundtracks including Ken Burns’ The West, Lewis and Clark, the film Michael Collins and PBS specials Alone Together, and more.
