Daisey Does MacDowell
Friday, August 22, 2008
Just over a century ago in New Hampshire, Edward and Marian MacDowell opened the doors of America’s first official artists colony. Aaron Copland wrote "Billy the Kid" there. Willa Cather worked on Death Comes for the Archbishop. And Mike Daisey went to work on a monologue. He spent a month in one of the wooded cabins at the MacDowell Colony last summer, and shares this story with us.
