Join TDF for a Conversation with Graciela Daniele and Michael John LaChiusa

Date: Nov 16, 2021

The longtime collaborators talk about their friendship and multiple musicals

What's the secret to Michael John LaChiusa and Graciela Daniele's enduring artistic relationship? According to them, it's laughter. That makes sense since the composer-lyricist-librettist and choreographer-director spend a lot of time giggling whenever they reminisce about the many musicals they've made on Broadway and beyond, including Chronicle of a Death Foretold, Marie Christine, Hello Again and their current show The Gardens of Anuncia, which just premiered at San Diego's Old Globe. The love between the two is palpable as is their shared passion for theatre and arts education. Join TDF on Thursday, November 18 at 1 p.m. ET on our Facebook page or YouTube channel for an exhilarating conversation with these close collaborators as they talk (and laugh!) about their friendship, reveal hilarious backstage stories and even do impressions of each other. Captions will be available.
