Studio 360

I've only caught the radio show Studio 360 a few times, but it's always been interesting. Today, WRIR broadcast the June 5th show that was kind of a Tonys preview. The marquee stories are the piece on "Joe Turner's Come and Gone" and the interview with Geoffrey Rush. But my favorite part is when they take a real gang member to see "West Side Story" to do something like a "reality check." It's fascinating that the interviewer almost seems to be goading the guy (Bruce George) or skirting the edge of getting pedantic and Mr. George keeps pulling out some amazing insights, including a quote from Noam Chomsky! Really amazing listening.
