Writer, composer and lyricist Deepali Gupta discusses some research topics for "I Love You Stranger," a new musical which takes a personal look at bipolar disorder. Navigating a balance of research and memoir, this work is being developed in the Civilians R&D Group.
We continue our investigation into Atlantic Yards, the largest development project in Brooklyn’s history. When it is finished, it will house the Barclays Center, the new home of the Brooklyn (neé New Jersey) Nets. Here, Billy Eugene Jones plays a homeowner who lived in the footprint of the site, Marsha Stephanie Blake plays City Councilor Letitia James and Sam Breslin Wright plays Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz. Jones returns at the end of the episode to sing “The Circle Song” by Michael Friedman.
