    3-10-19 Interview

    My second interview with Frank Galati, six years after the first, picks up where the first left off. In it Frank describes his theatrical adaptations of the works of Japanese novelist Haruki Murakami. Some of which were then translated back into the Japanese and other languages as well. He talks about his love of teaching, why he left teaching and the, to him, surprising turn his life has now taken. And he describes his newest endeavor; a theatrical piece called “Knoxville,” based on the novel “A Death in the Family,’ by James Agee which he is creating with Lynn Arens and Stephen Flagherty – with whom he collaborated on the Tony Award winning musical “Ragtime.” And which will debut at the Asolo Repertory Theatre in the spring of 2020
