Host Deanna Costa interviews Fuse contributor Steve Provizer about his latest pieces for the magazine. The two discuss reviews that generated plenty of comment: Steve’s critiques of Netflix’s The Trial of the Chicago 7 and the book Sittin’ In: Jazz Clubs of the 1940s and 1950s. This episode also features an additional snippet from 2020’s Virtual Fusical; this time, musical guest Ryan Lee Crosby takes the stage.
An important reminder that the magazine’s Winter Appeal is going on through the month. The last 10 months have been a challenge for many cultural organizations. One way of supporting the arts — with your tax-deductible gifts — is to help sustain The Arts Fuse, which advocates for the arts through its criticism, news, features, and commentaries.
