Daisey Does MacDowell


Friday, December 14, 2007

A hundred years 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 earlier this year, Mike Daisey went to work on a monologue. He has this to say about his month in a cabin at the MacDowell Colony.

Mary Worth only has two panels today. What will they do after dinner at the MacDowell Colony?
