Sing for Your Life by Daniel Bergner
Thursday, March 28, 2019
Patron Club of the Ohio Theatre | 6:30 pm
Conversation led by Joshua Borths, Interim Director of Opera & Musical Theatre at Capital University.
SING FOR YOUR LIFE chronicles Ryan’s suspenseful, racially charged and artistically intricate journey from solitary confinement to stardom. Daniel Bergner takes readers on Ryan’s path toward redemption, introducing us to a cast of memorable characters–including the two teachers from his childhood who redirect his rage into music, and his long-lost father who finally reappears to hear Ryan sing. Bergner illuminates all that it takes–technically, creatively–to find and foster the beauty of the human voice. And Sing for Your Life sheds unique light on the enduring and complex realities of race in America.
