Ten years after "The Great Immensity," received a National Science Foundation grant that drew the ire of Congressional Republicans, The Civilians' Artistic Director Steve Cosson discusses the complicated relationship between the government and arts organizations.
In this episode — recorded live at Joe’s Pub in NYC — Brandon Miller plays a lawyer from the Justice Department who specializes in organized crime. He discusses how he got into his field and some of the criminal schemes he has encountered in the courtroom. He also talks about the relationship between cooperation and American culture. Alix Lambert conducted the interview on which this monologue is based for her play “Crime, USA.”
