  • Music to Hang On to Life By

    Dramatizing the pull of music on a human life is no easy task, but Warren Leight's Side Man shows jazz players hanging on to their music to keep from giving in to despair, and its Austin premiere will benefit from the skill of Zachary Scott Theatre Center Artistic Director Dave Steakley, who has consistently demonstrated an uncanny knack for portraying the impact that music can have on a life and the place where drama is best expressed through music.

    "When government makes a free-market activity illegal -- smoking pot, buying porn, being an illegal alien -- it creates a black market that's untaxed, unregulated, and often dangerous," observes Nick Barbaro of Eric Schlosser's follow-up to Fast Food Nation.
