Late Night Radio
by Mike Kennedy
Sartre's Being and Nothingness meets E.L. Doctorow's Ragtime. From his broadcasting studio, Orson Welles observes the bustling Yiddishness of the Glickman Building and the stubborn Irish Westies of Hanrahan’s Bar, across the alley. The power of Orson’s monologues draws a visitor from the Morgan Library, a conservator of spent lives. Soon, we won’t call this place New York City any longer.
