"Couple more questions. Number one. Kelly wants to sound off about libraries. Go ahead, Kelly. Thank you for taking my call. This is basically a general announcement. Um Through my experience, Queens Public Library and New York Public Library do not have their computers available to patrons. Um, basically because it's a touchy situation, and it easily spread covered 19 But they are They are checking out books. You have to call and request the book the title. It helps. If you have the water, and then they'll put the book aside for you and let them know when you're gonna Go on, pick it up, and, uh it just check it out regularly, and I found out it takes two days. So for the coronavirus toe leave paper. Um, be Queens Library. I went to Um Holds the books in a in a container for two days. And by then the virus should be dead. And the New York Public Library branch. I went to hold the books for four days just to make sure Yeah. Yeah, well, no. I mean, my wife. I mean, this was years ago, she didn't. She always wipes the library books and sprays him when they come home, but a our tax dollars go to pay for that. And way we've had premature Children. So basically, we know how Tonto kind of deal with germs and the jewel in ski house and there's the other tip. People still wear their shoes when they come to my house. For for a party shoes Come off. We have two tiles that say Mahalo for taking your shoes off and rude. People still wanna wear shoes. And it's always an issue because I'm yelling it visitors when they come in my house to take off their shoes. Folks be Asian cultures have done this for centuries. I think that will be maybe the greatest innovation. Seo, stop the spread of germs. What do you say, Bob? Yeah, I don't like Queen's shoes indoors. If I don't have to some, I'm quite happy to take my shoes off. People don't want him on and my mother in law when she comes over all I need shoes because of my back. I said You need an inside parachutes. So now she brings her inside pairs. Thank you, Mom..

"The New York Public Library and find the link to watch live. This's w. N. Y. C 93.9 FM and AM a 20 NPR News and the New York conversation. This is fresh air weekend. I'm Terry Gross. Let's get back to my interview with Mikayla Cole, the creator, writer, director and star of the HBO. Siri's, I may destroy you. She also wrote and starred in the Siri's Chewing gum. Let's talk about your life describe where you grew up in London. I grew up in Tallahassee. Let's uh, may bring city of London on a Housing Association council estates, so it's a building that sits In a place and homes, maybe something like 300 different homes. I'm not sure the number around that. But outside of that it's just the Royal Bank of Scotland. The London Stock Exchange is there so it's not a neighborhood or residential area. It's just a building. Where it's part funded by the government to live there, so it's for people who are below is such an economic threshold. So I know your parents were from Ghana. Your mother raised. You think your parents separated before you were born? Um Two. Where there other Children who had parents who were immigrants from countries in Africa. Did you have People your age who you could talk to who had similar backgrounds. Yeah, definitely. And I also had my sister. She was two years older than me. So it was it was. There was something also quite lovely about being in a house with three women. It's mental. We were quite free way didn't have Tio, you know, moderate, the things we wore necessarily or anything like that, because There was no mount in the house. So there's something quite freeing about that. And when I went to high school, it was lovely to meet other people who We're also Children of immigrants here, uh, looked like me and it's very nice to see yourself reflected in in that way. So my understanding of the stories that you had joined a dance group. And it turned out that the group was affiliated with the Pentecostal church. And you ended up being born again and being a member of the church. Um, when you were in your late teens and a member of the church, what did you find most attractive about? Being a part of it. Definitely, I would say. The sense of Something beyond Discovering something outside of yourself on the community, the community of people that all believed in the same thing that names the thing beyond us. The same name. You went to Catholic school? Can you compare pair of the sense of religion you got from Catholic school to the sense that you got from being a member of the Pentecostal church? Oh, I wouldn't say that There was any religion in school. No. You were taught by nuns, probably right. No. See, I think that no, no, no, it's I really don't know why Why it's a Catholic school. It's a Catholic school, but Now you're just talk bye. Teachers who are not nuns. They're just teachers from From everywhere. I don't know where the non saw vacation for five years I was there, and their standards were absolutely dreadful. So when you're in the Pentecostal church, did you speak in tongues? Did I first spoke in tongues in a park? We would do this thing for prayer in the park. On DH. One of those prayer days I start was when I first worked in turns. Can you explain what it's like to speak in tongues? And like did you feel like you were inspired to do it by the you know, by the divine spirit, and then it was just kind of Coming out of you unprovoked, Or did you try to figure out what to say or like How? How did that work for you? Yes, I know what I think It did come out of me unprovoked, and I was definitely having an experience of something beyond And I like in that very much to the writing process when I don't necessarily know what I'm going to write, But I I put my fingers on the keypad and something flows. It's also like improvising a CZ, a comedy group English. This just happens to be tongues, and it's It's unexplainable. But yet It does happen. And what was the experience of doing it? How did how did that feel? Did it make you feel more connected spiritually to other people in the church? You know, now I just wonder being very emotional. Very, very, very emotional. On then, you know, life carries on as normal. And I think I even got some congratulations. Welcome Tongue Speaker. You have spoken in tongues on DH. It would. Sometimes I'd be in church and speak in tongues again. Yes, I mean, obviously, I definitely Don't speak in tongues anymore. But you know, when I meditate, sometimes I cry. Hey, I'm sure if I wanted to speaking in tongues, which is just like sound. Of course, I think we'll have to try it. I think the church probably had kind of a set of approved and restricted behaviors. I'm wondering like when you left the church if you kind of headed in the opposite direction when the when the restrictions were lifted. Interesting. Yes, definitely. But I don't know whether that was because of the church. The church always I really did give me permission to be me. I've always been, you know, I think people might describe me as a little bit. I would They describe me. I've been described as Gratifyingly bonkers and the church to chance definitely did not try and dampen that in any way they loved it. They They loved me performing poetry and gave me lots of freedom. However, it was the acting industry with its parties and fabulous people. That definitely led me down a A short stint of incredibly Hedonistic cocaine fueled? Yes. Did you have drawn that for your serious? I may destroy you also. I did? Yes. Yeah. When you look at that period of of your life, What are your thoughts about it? Hey, I think my thoughts are very similar to when Arabella. It takes all those drugs and somehow is escorted home very safely..

"To borrow the evil from the New York Public Library and find a link to watch live. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noelle King and I'm Steve Inskeep. Good morning, China did not even have to begin enforcing a new law to make changes. In Hong Kong. The central government just passed the national security law in Beijing and in Hong Kong. Pro democracy leaders are already stepping away from politics. This new law criminalizes a lot of dissent and changes the way that the centers would be put on trial. All of this affects a coastal territory that is supposed to have some autonomy dating back to its time as a British possession. NPR's Emily Fang is following this from Beijing. Hi there, Emily. Hey, Steve, is it understood exactly what's in the law? Yeah, that's the thing. Beijing passed this law about nine hours ago, but they still have not provided us a public draft of the law meaning Hong Kong people are supposed to follow a lot that they haven't read yet. But broadly we know that this law would allow Beijing not Hong Kong to judge case's deems relevant to national security and that Beijing will set up its own security body on Hong Kong soil to collect intelligence and investigate such cases. This was a highly secretive and accelerated process for passing what is a very significant piece of legislation. I talked to Wilson Lung earlier today He's a council member of Hong Kong's Bar Association. And that's you know, just completely contrary to the notions of law that we had in Hong Kong, which is the law as a accessible, transparent process. Where before you enact the law, you discuss it. You get the draft only bait. It. Instead. What Beijing did was they bypassed Hong Kong's legislative legislature? Completely it hen picked which representatives to consult and simply imposed the law. Hong Kong is too deeply supposed to follow. You mentioned that that Beijing will have its own course courts for cases that are of interest to Beijing so people will not be getting into the independent courts they've had since the British Times. And that they thought they were promised. Until I believe 2040 2047 does this break the promise of some autonomy for Hong Kong? Of course, Beijing says that this upholds that principle of semi autonomy but in practice yes, it breaks that promise. This law shows that Beijing's legal dictates now supersede Hong Kong's own rule of law whenever Beijing decides that issue falls under the umbrella of national security. I also talked to Alan Long. He's former chair of Hong Kong Legal Bar Association. He's now a pan democratic politician. He says that this national security law creates a parallel legal procedure in Hong Kong that's run by Beijing in Beijing only Once you are labeled a national security suspect. Then you will be put into that system, which would be mend by special branch within the Hong Kong police. Your case will be prosecuted by a special department within the Department of Justice. And you will be tied by some handpicked judges. The law is expected to be effective as of tomorrow July 1st, which not coincidentally, is the anniversary of Hong Kong's handover as a British possession to a Chinese territory. So we shall see if there are protests tomorrow have officials said how strictly they're going to enforce this new law. No, it is unlikely that Beijing would sweep up everyone deemed subversive and one go, but we have seen a massive chilling effect in Hong Kong civil society already Within hours of the law being passed to opposition Political party said they were going to voluntarily disband because they thought operating under such conditions was too dangerous. You've seen people deactivate many of their online social media accounts because they fear their political post may be used against them, and sales of anti surveillance software to jump over Chinese Internet censors have gone way up. And I guess if people did protest tomorrow, they would risk being arrested under this new system. Right. They face much higher legal penalties. Now Hong Kong police have always been much more strict and enforcing anti protests techniques. The U. S. Britain, other Western countries have spoken up in criticism of this national security law. The U. S. Has actually put sanctions visa restrictions on Chinese officials who curtail Hong Kong's freedoms. Beijing has hit right back and said it'll curtail visas for Americans who behave egregiously towards Hong Kong. NPR's Emily Fang in Beijing. Thanks. Thanks, Steve. When the White House and Congress passed Corona virus aid packages. They promise that sick people would not get stuck with the bills from Cove in 19 tests that has not turned out to be entirely true. Every month. We take a look at medical bills for our bill of the month. Siri's today a woman from Southern California who did everything she was supposed to do. Sarah Varney, a senior correspondent with Our partner, Kaiser Health News brought us this story. Follow your doctor's orders. That's exactly what Carmen Quintero did when she developed a racking cough on March 23rd and was sent home from work. I went to work and I was sick, so they sent me home. They told me I couldn't come back until I was tested. So something said that I didn't have the virus. Montero is 35 she and her girlfriend live in Corona, California, east of Los Angeles. In a house packed full of four generations..

Ramakrishna I just want to say how interested I would be in procuring your services your stats are amazing well I don't know I mean I only got twenty kids into ivy's last year and I want to thirty the other two went to MIT but you can't win them all well I guess I can't relate because I do when I'm all I'm in all AP classes and got a perfect score on my PS eighty great segue Davey effortless all of

killer test course maybe it's my **** personality or my insane power point skills I don't need some washed up white dude who leases the Tesla telling me what makes me special leasing is still a financial commitment in my monthly payment is quite Mindy Kaling welcome back to fresh AIR congratulations on your new series before we talk about the series how are you I'm doing great I mean it is a callous to say in this time it's a lot of spending time with my daughter and failed recipe making catches but it's given how terrible it is out there I have to say I feel very lucky and happy to be a well and at home how is it changing your life as a mother well it's really neat increasing my time as a mother and so I think I am at home with her all the time with my two year old and so she is over the moon I think I was more of like a mysterious guest star in her life before this and so now I am really here being domestic I think she likes it and I like it too what do you want to create a series where the main character is a sophomore in high school was at a turning point here for you to the story of why we did the show is a little bit under a man take and that I was approached by Netflix by an executive member Cussler who read both of my books and love to the sections about when I was a teenager and those are pretty short sections because like a lot of comedy writers I think of my adolescence and childhood as incredibly embarrassing and painful but she like those actions and she had seen that I'd not dramatize them and so she wanted to know if I would ever consider that and she thought I'd be a good fit for Netflix because there had never been a show about an Indian American girl on TV and at first I thought it would honestly be too painful and embarrassing to relive those experiences and it ends up being very cathartic because I hired a staff of many young Indian women and we talked about our teenage years which all happened at different times obviously because I'm older than most of the staff they're all they're all in their twenties because we wanted to get a young perspective and it made me feel that all the stuff I was going through as a teenager I was like not alone fifteen is a good year I think to start a show because it's when you think you can handle things like sex and relationships and going off to college but you really can't and having a character with a big ego who think she knows what her life is has in store for her we just felt like that was a good year also we had enough of high school left that we could dramatize the show for years to come I see Confucius is a sophomore now there could be the second semester and his messages are getting a junior and then senior yes we have thirty years thirty years at least to do the show Roger Goodell college afterwards yeah exactly so in this school we see her give okay in a series her father has a heart attack while attending a concert she's performing in and he dies and that's incredibly dramatic and then you're there the main character has this mysterious leg paralysis that last for one or a few weeks or a few months with that storyline come from I nothing like that happened to you did it no it didn't happen to me it happened to the brother of my co creator Lang Fisher so when we were talking about the series with their so many teenage series on Netflix and actually just out there about love and sex and all of that and we were both really interested because we had parents that died unexpectedly and talking about grief and how grief manifests itself and her brother after her parents got divorced had about four months when his legs were paralyzed and then all of a sudden they started working again and they went to every doctor and their lives every psychologist and it was this mysterious thing and when that happened in researching and this is something that happens to people particularly young people sometimes after Tommaso that was hard to resist as something to talk about it after she spoke to her brother and got permission we felt we wanted to use it in this series because we thought it was a a really fascinating physical manifestation of a teenager's grief so you know you mentioned that you and your cook creator both lost parents unexpectedly your mother died in around twenty twelve twenty eleven of pancreatic cancer like what are some of the ways her death informed how you wrote the series and actually a lot of unexpected ways Lang and I and other writers who lost parents got to speak about that grief and unique circumstances that we thought were only us like we we found that between the two of us and another writer there were these instances after her parents died that we would have dreams about them where they were alive in the dreams we let ourselves safely your dad how are you talking to me and they said no I got better and so when you talk to two other people in a red a comedy writers room and they've all had this theory similar experience plus their parents death it is first of all strange different company records room and it's not funny at all but also like wow okay well this maybe happening to other people as well so those are things that we put in the script as well as dreaming about your parents and also the peculiar way that your relationship with your parent exists even after they've died and that's something I've talked to a lot of people that they feel that way spiritual or not spiritual you know it is there not a lot of people have that same experience and so we wanted to put that in the show too so the main character has two best friends one of them is Chinese American one of them's African American the main character's Indian American and so they're known as the U. N. and she assumes that means United Nations you know but she is also told it's for a much more negative reason because they're all on affable so what we are called anything like that when you were in high school you know I'm sure I was I never discovered that to my face I'm absolutely sure there is tons of me nicknames for me because I would hear me nicknames about other nerdy girls who are not me and you know there is a tall girl away went to school with was very beautiful actually but she was tall and because all the boys are shorter than her and that made them in security culture B. stuff and she had no idea that was her nickname and so when you hear about things like that I mean that that's such a cool nickname we just had these girls have to have this and you know that's been a real reflection of me in high school and my friend Lang as well where we were nerds and I'm Asian so we were just gravitated I don't know whether it's covered we gravitated towards other minority nerds and it wasn't something I'd seen on TV before I thought well you know this is my real experience so maybe we should show it we are serious student like the main character it's not because I was a student but one thing we noticed when we see shows about nerds is that because they tend to be a lot of the side characters they tend to be very demeanor and wildflowers they don't want to speak up for themselves and that's definitely a kind of inner and that was at my school but there's also like the belligerent confident nerd the wanted big things for themselves and even though they're not getting it it doesn't mean that they don't think they deserve it and a language also and an over achieving nerds who then went to an Ivy League school we both had the same experience and we wanted to show an ambitious nerd socially wanted to lose your virginity wanted to be cool go to concerts and it of course never happened for either of us but we thought that would be fun to show you know they're not all sad quiet bookworms although we were also those things but we were like loud and rambunctious and opinionated were you belligerent I think at times I think that when you are interested in comedy at a young age and you don't know how to express it I think that you I think that I'm not sure belligerent is exactly the right word I do think that I stood up for myself a lot and in a way that probably put people off certainly boys yeah did you have a temper like your character does definitely and I still have a temper and now and it's it's interesting being Asian because I think that you don't associate Asian women having temper since but so many of us do right so that's not the stereotype about it so I was thrilled to do a show about a lot of short fused Asian women and to show.

S. and now like a lot of artists she's had to put that on hold so instead she did a special performance for you straight from her living room to yours the first is my conversation with via mighty hi Hey how are you good how are you very very very very good this morning house self isolation treatment hi I mean I'd say there's like a good and the bad the bad as well I think obviously what everyone else is going through and the sense of whatever momentum has been stunted and whatever we've been working on like maybe we can continue on those things but I would say the positive in that is that I've been able to work on things that I don't normally have the time for so I've been doing a lot of like home decor and home renovation creating an inspiring environment for myself which only facilitates the creativity that I'm working on as well I've also worked on a lot of the music so that's really cool I was bummed for you because you were supposed to play in Austin at south by southwest and you're coming off this incredible year winning the Polaris music prize it was supposed to be sort of a big coming out and you had a big viral video it must've been disappointing not to bring it back up but it must have been disappointing not to be able to do those kind of gigs yeah I I will say initially I took it very hard because the first thing that was largely cancel myself myself west and I've been trying to get into that myself was free for a couple years now so I had three shows for the first time ever I've never played before and I was really excited I had met with some you know contacts in New York and I've got like another gig while in New York so it's gonna be like four shows I was really excited for it and I remember when I was in LA the last day I was leaving I was told by my counselor was like there's no way there's no way that they cancel this thing for the first time and in like thirty something years and then when that happened I took it really hard and kind of it a lot it's very hard but I think you know within a day or two but quickly realized that this is like a life thing it's not you know it's not a meeting is not in Austin Texas things so that I think was how I was able to be like okay this is everybody is dealing with this and I was able to rationalize you know they need to not cry because it's just we're all in this together so you know we can't be worried about how it's affecting you and you alone I think rationalizing the need to not cry is something we're all doing on like an hourly basis I think so too even doing livestreams no I've actually been tuning into yours every artist I know is doing live streams right now but I I found myself gravitating towards your that's because I think you're a you know a great musician but I I also just love that you're showing the process more than just giving performances tell me a little bit about what you've been doing on these live streams I thank you but I am really glad to be checking them out and I think for me you know it actually goes hand in hand with like the homes of course stuff because I think when I realize I was restricted to recording things in my house I realized that there was not inspiring spaces even recording or even aesthetically pleasing spaces to recording so I've been focused on focusing on kind of creating environments where if I choose to go in this query to look like this if I would come here to look like this my goal right now in isolation is to try to give the most optimal experience for the viewer so if I'm giving a show experience I really don't want to lose out on the sound quality you know so I'm really focused on learning more about how to utilize my iPhone as a piece of hardware and how to navigate all the cables that I've invested over the years and and just make it an optimal experience for the viewer I'm I'm not a live stream personale like very new to it but I've learned a lot over the past couple of weeks just trying to figure out how to make it look good sound good I've invested in you know lighting and selfie sticks and stands and just things that I can M. corporate to make sure that these live performances are different every time as well I think keeping it fresh is really important to me so I want to do something new every time I do a lot I'm excited you're going to play some music for us what he gonna play today I'm gonna play an acoustic version of in women color as well as blame both my socks tell me why you chose these songs to perform to people who are kind of stuck in their homes right now I chose and women color because well first of all I wanted to do something very different for this live I'm done you know a couple allies thus far and this is the first one that's going to be at the caustic in nature I decided you know to try to bypass the backing tracks for this one I wanted to be a little more intimate and I would say that in women color is probably one of the most intimate songs on the album but in addition to that I think it's really experimental production wise and so it allows my piano player my sister Lisa mighty to really exercise and play with the chord progressions and and you know have fun with it in ways that some of the other production maybe doesn't open up for it was also the first single that I released from the album thirteen flooring you know as we're kind of coming to the close of that album kind of paying homage to the early beginnings of the record and then blame I would say is the biggest single for the rock from the record so you know with performances I love to give sometimes little chunks of other songs and having you know just give a little bit more listeners lives alone little piece of blame at the end are you and your sister get along in close quarters yes definitely my sister is an incredible piano player and I am able to after play anything at any time is this place so I'm like to be stuck with someone who can inspire me like that she like can play all the things that are in my head so what have I I can't wait to hear the song thanks for making the time today and stay safe thank you so much I appreciate you

"The age of ninety one his legacy lives on and is being celebrated at a new exhibit at the New York Public Library for the performing arts at Lincoln center it explores his legacy it's called in the company of Harold prince Broadway producer director collaborators the exhibit is open now and runs through March twenty twenty I spoke with this curator Doug reside so this actually been in the war so it's been about three years that we have been thinking about it as it really of course picked up in the last year but I I was fortunate that I was able to talk to help prince a little bit about the exit exit lives working on it and what kind of conversations did you have for the last time I met with him I walked him through the the floor plan of the exit at the the different rooms that we would have the different experiences that we hope the visitor would would have as they they visited the library he said that he thought it was that a swell idea and really theatrical which made me really happy well it's a French said of the people the experience they would have because there's quite a bit of of upper trees be interactive that's right so we we tried to draw from the aesthetics of immersive theater like sleep No more than than she felt that when you enter the exhibit we have a recreation of hal's office in around nineteen fifty nine or so and you can look at material that is on his desk that are reproduced from our collections so you can see a I think there's a receipt from a moose head for damn Yankees and a calendar page from his desk calendar and if I we encourage people to open up the doors and see what they find in the doors of the desk is well and occasionally the phone rings that's right yes well ring every once in awhile and I encourage you to pick it up and see if he was calling the people freak out when the phone rings yeah I was on that so who's on the other side you might say yeah so it's it's held talking about the time that Stephen Sondheim called him and said that they just lost the producer for West Side Story and how was on the road with new girl in town and which at that point wasn't going terribly well either so how had said that he'd love to produce the show and and thus that collaboration with that story was born I'm wondering as you said you you worked on this for three years you've been talking about it thank you began to curate at home when you begin to thinking about what you wanted in it what was the story you wanted to tell the for a couple I did that the most important was to look at this person who really didn't that he he didn't write most of the work that there are almost any of the work that he he he he produced he didn't design it but he is in many ways the the person to whom the for attendees musicals are are accredited and so I wanted to look at the way that he did that and the way that I think one way that he did that it's three being at an expert collaborator so he created little families that he worked with and work with them for a long time thought he did a lot of shows with on time a lot of shows with the designer birth parents and and if you look at the the credits for his show as you can see that the same names keep popping up over and over again he said a family what would be his role in the family I people seem to think of him it certainly later on as a kind of father figure I think in the earlier shows he was sort of a brother too I'm really a lot of the people that he worked with that certainly Sondheim that body Griffith was sort of an older brother to him it was that his co producer co producer for a while certainly in all of the stories that I've heard of how their their universally positive people really loved working with him we recently get his love of theater he talks about in interviews and then also in his autobiography that when he was a kid and he was brought to the theater a lot he I I what he says is that and it was almost like a religious experience for the way he says it is Jewish families living on the Upper West Side at the time that they would go to the theater and the way that many people go to church or to synagogue my guess is Doug reside the curator of in the company of Harold prince Broadway producer director and collaborator it's currently at the New York Public Library for the performing arts at Lincoln center it's interesting you know he went to Penn but there wasn't a major right there wasn't a theater major of any kind that's right he I he majored in liberal arts and it talks about how he he actually feels like a it's great for people to learn things other than theater I in their in their degrees why why I think because I you have to bring something to the stage aside from the theater of course there's a lot of backstage musicals but he was really interested in histories and looking at the way that I human nature often whenever a AG culture it becomes scared they turn against a scapegoat and that happens over and over again in his musicals and from cabaret to the opera Willie stark even phantom of the opera we see that theme rehearsed over and over again in his musicals and by his own description he was privileged quote upper middle lower rich class anywhere to obviously I would school you pen but he did have a lot Hassel and him he did yeah seven exhibit we have some great letters where he is arranging and an internship with chamberlain brown one of the producers of the time and then that relationship sort of falls apart and he moved to the other office and he talks about it in interviews and in his autobiography that he had to remember to write watch it on the top of his desk calendar because he realized that his that sort of very excited personality is very at it he took a lot of initiative and that was he found could be annoying to the people working with the server George Abbott was very young I used to twenty seven twenty is yeah what we how would you describe that relationship I think that was he he described it very much as a mentor religion he talks about I I in the last last time that I talked and we talked about flora the red menace which was done in the sixties and it seems very much like a help prince Chevy didn't directed he produced it and he said that he he would have loved to have directed it but his at his mentor George Abbott really wanted to direct it and I think it has its generosity to in this respect for abit that he was interested in this piece of but wanted his mentor to have a chance to direct the show that he wanted to direct someone else you mentioned earlier that he collaborated with was Boris Aronson where do we see this collaboration in the exhibit so there's a large room in about the middle of the exhibit that is dedicated to this collaboration helping says that board turns and with the most important person to whom he was ever introduced and of course that a lot of people so that things we have set models for company and follies and Pacific overtures and one of my favorite moments of the exhibit we learned as we were putting it together that the model for company seems to have been built to allow slides that were sentencing had created to be projected on the model itself so we have the original slides and we talked about how to present them and I we thought about maybe present about projecting them on the wall at one point that we tried projecting them on the model and it just immediately let up and we could see that it was designed for exactly that purpose and it's a really it's a it's a beautiful moment in the exhibit what was special about that collaboration I think that helps the very visual director he in many ways was similar to a television or cinema director today the director today I'm in so he would often have the model before the score or the script was even completed he has a letter to George Furth the book writer for company where he says that with Mitchell his co producer and sometime stage manager had was visiting him in Germany while he was working on a film with Mitchell brought with her the designs enforcer Anthony right from this letter to George Furth who is not yet completed the script that he hopes on time will be there the next week and with the songs we've seen the design before the show was even in any way complete we're talking about in the company of Harold prince Broadway producer
