LIVE THEATER: DEAD WAKE with David Houston
Monday April 3, 2017
~ LONG ISLAND READS EVENT
Dead Wake, Erik Larson's thrilling, imaginatively written account of the fate of the Lusitania in 1916, has been chosen for Long Island Reads 2017. Larson grew up in Freeport to become "one of the modern masters of popular narrative non-fiction" ~ according to The New York Times. In 2004, his unforgettable Devil in the White City quickly hit the Times bestsellers lists and stayed there for five years! In 2015 his Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania was published to rave reviews and again reached number one on the NYT non-fiction list.
David Houston will produce a one-hour program in the style of radio drama of excerpts from this year's island-wide read. Actors Diana Heinlein and David Houston provide the narrative and character voices over a background of sound effects and the lush suspenseful music of Erich Korngold.
