Mint Theater Company, which has been unearthing forgotten plays since 1992, presents a recording of Days to Come by legendary dramatist Lillian Hellman. Her second play, the show only ran for a week on Broadway in 1936, but the Mint presented a rare and well-received revival of this family drama in 2018. Set against the backdrop of labor strife in a small Ohio town, it centers on a young man who takes over the family business after his father dies. But the choices he makes threaten to tear apart the community and his kin.

Meredith Willson was born in Iowa and set his most famous musical, The Music Man, in his home state. So it makes sense that Iowa PBS is streaming Meredith Willson: America's Music Man, a new hour-long documentary about the multitalented artist. In addition to his iconic show, he also penned The Unsinkable Molly Brown, a hit in its day, and Here's Love, a musicalization of the classic movie Miracle on 34th Street. Plus he scored films for Charlie Chaplin, wrote popular songs performed by the likes of Frank Sinatra and The Beatles, and even played the flute and piccolo under John Philip Sousa and Arturo Toscanini. Sutton Foster, who starred in the most recent Broadway revival of The Music Man, narrates this fascinating look at Willson's eclectic career.
