Foster, Sedgwick, Scissorhands
Friday, March 02, 2007
Studio 360 spends time with rebels, loners and romantics. Singer-songwriter Ruthie Foster tells Kurt Andersen why she leapt from folky blues to old school soul. Warhol muse Edie Sedgwick is remembered in the film Factory Girl. Movie director Michel Gondry longs for his creativity to be his ticket to romance. Edward Scissorhands, the misunderstood dreamer from the Tim Burton film, can be seen on a stage in tights in a ballet touring the country now. And Kurt speaks with Joan Didion about her memoir, The Year of Magical Thinking -— it arrives on Broadway this week as a one-woman show.
