    Acclaimed journalist and author Lee Sandlin delivers a riveting glimpse of a dangerous and colorful place in America’s historical landscape - the Mississippi River of the 19th century. Long before it was dredged into a shipping channel or romanticized into myth, the untamed Mississippi - the lifeblood of communities that rose and fell along its banks - spawned a motley array of pirates and dignitaries, visionaries, and thieves.

    Three new American plays: Dancing Lessons centers on Ever, a young man with Asperger's syndrome who seeks the instruction of a Broadway dancer to learn enough dancing to survive an awards dinner. Judith of Bethulia, written by and starring Broadway legend Charles Busch, is an outrageous and bawdy celebration of the Hollywood biblical epic genre! Jeffrey Sweet's Kunstler brings to life the once-comfortable suburban lawyer who became America's most revered and reviled attorney for the civil rights and radical movements.
