Bob Martin on musical theatre as an escape from the harshness of life
Bob Martin's latest musical The Prom is about a troupe of washed up Broadway stars who leave New York to head to small-town Indiana. Their hope is to help a young lesbian couple who have been banned from attending their high school prom. Martin joins Tom Power live from New York to talk about injecting some heartfelt comedy into the production and why he believes in the healing power of musical theatre.
