The Sound of Applause, ideastream’s weekday radio magazine, celebrates the visual and performing arts, explores cultural trends, and examines current events through an artistic lens.
Dan Polletta talks with Cleveland-born playwright Rajiv Joseph about the new independent lens documentary Playwright: From Page to Stage which airs later this month on WVIZ/PBS. Plus interim Cleveland Museum of Art director Fred Bidwell talks with Dee Perry about his upcoming plans for CMA in 2014. And we share the music of Burnt Sugar The Arkestra Chamber which kicks off 2014 at CMA for New Year's Eve.
