A potent mix of cabaret, social history, very juicy gossip, glorious music and all parts fun. Step inside 7 Middagh Street in Brooklyn, NY, where, in the early 1940’s, an amazing collection of artists lived under the same roof. The poet W.H. Auden, the Southern writer Carson McCullers, the composer Benjamin Britten and the burlesque entertainer and aspiring writer Gypsy Rose Lee all lived and frolicked there, followed, soon after, by just about everyone else in pre-war Manhattan. With humour, tragedy and dollop of juicy gossip, Bohemians in Brooklyn brings you inside one of the most fascinating addresses in history.
If you have listened to CBC Radio 1 or CBC Music you will be familiar with the voice of Tom Allen, who currently hosts the weekday afternoon show, Shift. He is a musician and storyteller who fills his programs with interesting facts about the music, the composer and the forces that shaped them both.
