Adam Rapp is a creative artist who keeps busy. He’s a musician and a filmmaker, a novelist and he’s written episodes of HBO’s In Treatment. He also is a playwright of prolific output – something like 20 plays in the last 10 years.

The New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood joins host Jeff Spurgeon to talk about Rapp's latest staged work called Dreams of Flying, Dreams of Falling, which is playing at the Classic Stage Company in a production from the Atlantic Theater Company.

You can win a pair of tickets to see Rapp's Dreams of Flying, Dreams of Falling by correctly answering this question: Rapp’s next theatrical outing is as director of a rock opera called Stop the Virgens. The show features songs written by the lead singer of which indie rock band?
